Ok, now this is all starting to come together.
At least part of what needs to happen is you need to have some kind of 
working relationship with these shops.  We've had these kinds of 
discussions before.
If nothing else, I think this illustrates the value of giving more 
specifics about your needs.  Sometimes there are work-arounds.  You have 
to consider that you will do all this work and still be disappointed.  
There are some very knowledgeable people involved with Scribus as far as 
print shop issues (I'm not one of them).  The more specific questions 
you ask, the more they can help.

You're no doubt in a little bit of a fugue state -- you need to settle 
down and not try to eat the whole thing at once.  If you're talking 
about a resume, surely the color management issue only involves a 
portion of what you are trying to accomplish.

With Latex, you need to scrounge a book somewhere -- borrow one, find 
one in a library, I don't know.  The online stuff in 'info latex' in a 
sense has all the information, but it's very hard to learn from, better 
as a resource after you already know quite a bit.
