[Scribus] some qs about exporting pdfs

I have a scribus document and it will be exported as a PDF and send to a
printing company (they actually prefer pdfs). They also have their own icc
profiles which I use in Scribus.

I want to get it as right as possible from the beginning and my question is: 

How reliable is print preview and the document I see in Acrobate reader when
it comes to colour accuracy? I tried all the PDF standards (I don't know yet
if they accept all of them) and they all look really good on screen and so
does the printing preview.  

I also wonder about the ?solid colours? option under ?color management?. The
icc profile from the printing company is not available there, is this how it
should be? 

I am also not sure what to do with ?solid colours? when exporting pdfs
(colour tab).

 I assume  ?Colour? -->  ?Images:? --> ?Use ICC Profile?,  means that
Scribus uses the profile I chose in CMYK pictures. Is that correct?  That 
profile is also embedded in the image from the beginning. If not what is the
difference here between an image and a picture?
