[Scribus] Colour Swatch and more questions

After some research on your answer, I repeat my question about a way to know
from a physical "yardstick" what your colour will look like on paper, that
is on a specific type of paper assuming your printer uses it and does not
take liberties with it?
Well actually I thought this was the purpose of such colour swatches, to get
a client to pick his colours there, and be sure the output will match.
I know Pantone publishes colour swatches which may be used to order specific
inks (then inserted as spot colours), but could you then tell me which tool
makes a link between a colour on the screen and the coding used there, which
I don't care if it looks good or not (and calibrating a monitor is NOT an
option because I work on a general market laptop screen) and a final paper
result (fortunately I do not have to work with fabric or other fancy
physical output) which I have to be sure of... before the money is spent.
Alright bottomposting there, not sure if I follow the etiquette.
