You'll need to get disperse dye. But as a warning, most polyester will dye but there are some that won't...you'll just have to test =/  Below is a great link and it should contain all the info you need...about half way down the page is a link for Sources for Dyeing Supplies (if you're not North America based there are listings for Europe, Australia/New Zealand and South America as well). Pburch.net is an amazing resource...bookmark it!
