Green and yellow filters should have similar effect as they both cut out blue light (yellow filter also admits red; irrelevant to paper) and therefore give you a lower-contrast image on VC paper, which is probably a good idea since paper contrast is much higher than film contrast. The spectral response of a green filter is often good for realistic-looking portraits too.

You can't make an image on B&W paper using red light though, so you won't get the spectral effects you would with a red filter on panchromatic film.
