[scribus] Offset printing

I'm very new to Scribus and printing in general. I've read the Scribus manual but have a couple of basic questions.

I have a document that I want to have printed on an offset printer.  The document contains a number of rbg screen captures.  Some years ago I had a similar document printed that had an overall purple tinge, which I want to avoid.

1. Does the "printer" selection for PDF documents simulate the appearance of the offset printed document ?

2. Do I give the PDF generated with the "screen / web" setting to the printer, (rather than the "printer" setting) ?

3. For "solid colors" and "images" should I select the check box and select my monitor profile when creating the PDF, or should I leave these check boxes unchecked ?

Any help is very much appreciated.
