Chromoplasts are plastids that contains pigments other than chlorophyll, usually yellow or orange carotenoids.
Don't know anything about the other term that you have mentioned in your post.

Cytomembrane system? That would basically mean every memrane in the cell. it probably refers to the endomemrane system which consists of the endoplasmic reticulum, the golgi apparatus, lysosoms, secretion vesicles and other transport vesicles
