There are no such things as adjustment layers in GIMP, but in one of the future versions, much more powerful tools will be available to allow non-destructive editing. You can do pretty much of what's done there though in different ways as mentioned on the page that Tim gave. As to why the BG copy 2 layer in your page is b&w, I best quote that page itself: "the top layer (Background copy) shows where we did a simple 'remove colour' and have de-selected the 'eye' so as to hide this layer." The coloured seem to be effectively desaturated with one of the adjustment layers.
