[Scribus] Colour Swatch and more questions

Three questions, one about supplies for the country where I live and I hope I won't sound N00B with the other two.

1) I am looking for a colour swatch and would like to know if anyone knows an online shop where I could find one.

Use: paper printing only (brochure printing)
Not sure if they always have CMYK codes, but it should ;o)
Range: small (1000 or even fewer colours will be fine)

I live in Poland and I know some people live in Poland too on this list, not quite sure how this is called in Polish and whether it is possible to get it from a local dealer.

2) I have been reading and reading again all colour management threads and of course the Wiki. I still have an important question... is it strongly recommended to design two documents when one will be designed for the web and the other for the printer, or is it reasonably safe to create the document with CMYK images (converted by photoshop), all used colours defined in the CMYK space including in logos, and then export the web version for "web/screen"?
I keep a store of all my images converted in CMYK because I am not sure how to manage the design from RGB space pictures if the final output is on paper, and each test is so much of a risk and expense.
Is there a smarter way or am I just taking the safest and most painful road?

3) Also I read the other day about leaflet printing but it seems all the tools for that are on Ubuntu / Linux, or is there something for Windows ?
Does that include the possibility from a single document numbering 1 23 45 67 8 to get a web version published as 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 and ALSO 18 27 36 45 for the printer in a more or less automatic way ?
