Hi! I have found that some dyes still work on chrome tanned leather. Especially if you are using a dark color dye like black. Also you can certainly paint on the surface of chrome tanned leather with leather paints, or even acrylic paint, but those won't penetrate the leather very well. I think you would really have to test on your leather, and see what happens when you try to remove the dye with water after it has dried. You can find a good selection of dyes and stains here: https://www.tandyleather.com/en/category/dyes-antiques/2
