Just got my jeep in and love it so far, I wanted to get some calipers to match the blue accents but was asked what was the paint code, we looked into the name and found all these odd names like "surf blue" sky blue , baby blue , but was trying to see if the exact paint code was posted anywhere

Krylon Satin Lagoon Blue is a good match.

So I'm so new to the painting world and I'm going to paint these myself , I had some caliper covers made and even though they are red I want to make them that light blue, what should I use to get the red paint off and start this process

I wouldn't try to remove the red paint. I would use a high quality degreaser and then rough up the paint with 150 or 220 grit sand paper. You want I high temp paint to go on them though as brake calipers will get over 375 degrees during normal operation on the road.
