Hello, my pumpkins (about 9) are still green and greenish orange, and Halloween is approaching quickly! I was wondering what I should do to speed up the process of them turning orange, or is it too late for them to turn orange? The first frost is coming soon, are they going to die?

You can't rush the pumpkins to maturity so you can only hope they will turn orange on their own. Even if they don't, you can still carve them for the holidays and you can cook and eat them - they just won't be mature enough to store for any length of time.
