Can you connect a 110 volt NTSC Only VCR to a PAL TV trough RF??
And watch movie in color with sound?

Don't think so. Virtually ANY PAL vcr will playback NTSC tapes in full colour on a PAL tv but a NTSC vcr will have all the wrong timings and colour signal.

Like I said, a NTSC vcr will send the wrong colour signal to a PAL tv. At best you get a B&W picture.
One could, in the past, get standards converters which change the NTSC colour to PAL colour. Then you could use the PAL tv fully. (Still require a power adapter since I guess your voltage is not 110)
A PAL vcr will, however, convert the NTSC colour signal and playback NTSC tapes in full colour. No standards converter required and no power adapter either - maybe a change of plug but that's all.
Can you tell/link what converters you mean?
I only know that converters for composite, not RF.
And in menu these says there is M system:

You would need to connect the NTSC VCR's composite-out to the NTSC composite-in connection on an NTSC to PAL composite video converter. The PAL composite-out on the converter would need to be connected to the composite-in connection of a PAL RF modulator. The PAL RF modulator's RF-out would be connected to the TV's RF.

PAL TV's usually accept NTSC video without problems (at least you should get B/W picture), audio on RF is different topic.
If you did not use RF (let's say Composite instead) it would work out of the box with any European TV made in the last 15 years*, and with many but not all before that (with the number decreasing until you hit about 1990 where it approaches zero percent).
* well, minus the the HDMI-only ones (wouldn't ever buy such lol).
Edit: Yes, I am talking about NTSC color, not PAL60.
