Welcome. You don't need a darkroom to develop film; you can do B&W with just a daylight tank, changing bag and couple of measuring devices. Printing obviously requires the dark but that doesn't mean you can't scan (except that we don't talk about that on APUG).
Most of my shots posted on the web are direct scans from film, though I also do wet printing.
PS: XP2+ is worth a look if you don't want to develop your own but want monochrome. It's B&W but runs in C41 chemistry so CVS can still develop/scan/print for you.
