Not sure on the first two points but I Iwould imagine you will definately need a laquer coat. To make it shine, easier to clean and protect the paint.
I think a lot of people on here have anthracite coulour wheels saying that.
Sorry couldn't help more!

I'm not sure on the exact Name/Paint Code of Gunmetal Grey..?

However there's quite a few diffrent Shade's of "Grey" - To name a few there's Ford Graphite Grey,Volvo Grey,Peugeot Graphite Grey,Rover also do a nice Grey colour aswell.Go down to your local Halford's and have a browse at what's Grey's there Is to give you a Idea of the look.

If the Alloy's are In good condition with no major deep sratche's then you should be ok just using a Primer to fill any light mark's In....
