The function and add-hook below do what you are looking for.

(defun pk-aqua ()
   (set-background-color "aquamarine1"))
(add-hook 'ess-mode-hook 'pk-aqua)

There were two misunderstandings in your original setup.
1. add-hook takes a function name, not an elisp command.
2. M-x R opens up *R* in inferior-ess mode.
   C-x C-f myfile.r opens up a file in ess-mode.
