Yes, I suppose that you could, but what I do is just sacrifice one piece of film and make test strips from it. And then I determine optimal exposure and development just like I would for paper.

2) Is it possible to use a color head to have more contrast control?
Not for contrast control. It won't work like MG paper, if that's what you're asking. But there are many other ways to control contrast, e.g. by fine-tuning exposure and development, by dodge and burn, by bleaching and SLIMT (which I haven't done, but why not). Colour filters will allow you to play with with tones correspond to particular colours, so a colour head will be nice to play with (I don't have one).
