I have a Roland BK-5 keyboard. What is required to have the keyboard automatically change chords on backup rhythms when I play my guitar and change chords? Can it be done?

If you were very experienced at working with MIDI and sequencer programming, and you had a MIDI interface on your guitar, it might be possible to work out a system to do this, but no, the Roland BK-5 does not have any features specific to interfacing with a guitar.

You ought to learn about guitar-to-MIDI interfaces, such as the Fishman TriplePlay and the Roland GR-series of products.
