    They are both conventional B&W films so you can't process them in C41 chemistry.

    Your best choice is Ilford XP2 Plus for a B&W film that can be C41 processed.

    Man from moon,

    Both these films are Black and White negative films. They can not be processed in C-41. There are B&W films that can be processed in C-41 like Kodak BW400CN or Ilford XP2.

    Personally I prefer conventional films to chromogenic - XP2/BW400CN, and so yes Acros would be much better but ideally you should process it yourself, which is very easy.

    Get some Kodak D-76 or any clone _76, or Moersh chems, and check the massive developing chart on digitaltruth.com for times and temps.

    The lab will either have a single, general purpose black and white developer or will be more of a custom lab that offers a choice.

    The thing to do is to talk to the lab before you buy your film, or if you cannot do that, before you expose it. The lab will most likely have a good idea what works well with their general purpose process or, if they offer custom services, will be able to give you advice on what might work best for someone with your equipment and level of experience.
