They can be territories, as long as they are cored. The capital does not need to remain in Europe. Edirne is European, so the Ottomans are eligible and have the best shot at a quick land rush into India. 1.1 H

You need to directly own and core the target provinces, and not through your colonial nation. For this you either need to move your capital city into the North America continent before a subject formed or to reintegrate them. Or you can vassalize a native, take land from some other native including the needed ones and core one coast piece to magically being able to core the other 4 and just give the 5th to your vassal to not form a colonial nation. Simply annexing a vassal in the region won't fire the achievement. You could also wait for the last age and use Unrestricted Conquest.

Pirate's republics can declare war on Colonial nations without their overlord being called as an ally, so if Europeans begin to colonize the Caribbean before you can finish, it may be easier to allow a colonial nation to form.
