Go for a well known brand, such as Humbrol or Revell, and go for Satin Black. It's half and half between Gloss and Matt. Also, buy a decent brush and some fine masking tape whilst you are at it, I use Tamiya masking tape.

For some things, certainly. But if you use the metallic paints on anything you intend to handle frequently, you have to cover them with clear coat. Otherwise your skin oils will rub them off.
