If Tim Russ dyes out the grey he will look exactly the same, especially with a little makeup.
Janeway.. sigh. The big qualities would be:
The warmth and her quality of seducing everyone into doing what she wants.
The directness, the barking out orders like you mean it. No one like Elizabeth Weir in SG:A who delivered all her lines like a terrified flower.
It's the ability to bark and seduce in the same character we need.
Ya know, I'm kinda wondering how Uma Thurman might handle the part of Janeway. I kinda think she could handle that balance you are speaking of. Uma's only about 15 years younger than Kate Mulgrew, so the age would be about right.

Where are we going? And why are we in this Handbasket?
