Um, looks like one who's doing it on the cheap and has no clue of what he's doing. Anyway, you can use CMYK colours without a colour profile. Just don't expect a satisfying result.
As for a greyscale palette, I added one some time ago. It's called "Shades of K" in the dialogue.
If you had bothered to consult the built-in documentation, you'd be aware of this ;)
