Sure - they are just "values".  You can use a variable name, or an equation for
the index.

I will often do things with "lines" or bands of color that I want to control the
spread of across the color map, and I'll define a half-width (hw) of that
region, and then use n-hw and n+hw as index entries.

Sure - color interpolation has been discussed at some length a few times in the
past.   I find the HSV space to be useful since it is continuous in "colors" and
doesn't dip down into the grayscale regions.
