First of all, in Emacs one thinks in keymaps and commands, not so much keys in their (original) context. Your first step would be figuring out how the commands are named in Evil's normal and visual state (
F1 k), then what keymap they're bound to (just look through
M-x find-library). Armed with this knowledge, accomplishing this is fairly simple:
(with-eval-after-load 'evil-maps (define-key evil-motion-state-map (kbd ":") 'evil-repeat-find-char) (define-key evil-motion-state-map (kbd ";") 'evil-ex))
If you for whatever reason are still on Emacs 24.3:
(eval-after-load 'evil-maps '(progn (define-key evil-motion-state-map (kbd ":") 'evil-repeat-find-char) (define-key evil-motion-state-map (kbd ";") 'evil-ex)))
You might wonder why I'm defining a remapping for motion state only, it's because Evil only maps these keys in that state, so applying your suggested changes as is would be unnecessary.
