You can create a new swatch color by hitting the circled icon in this picture. I dont know how acurate your printer will be, bust most profesional printing will use CMYK. Maybe someone else can help you with that piece...

It converts the colours chosen by you into 'safe colors', because Illustrator was made for the real mediaprintdesigners. CMYK is the color combination the professional printers only understand. When you come up with an RGB picture, that you wanna print out at the press, it will return a blank paper. The printer only see CMYK colorsdefinitions.

The problem is that CMYK can't make all the colors, like RGB can. It has a less wide range of colors it can make. That's the reason it will convert the picked colors in a color which CMYK CAN make.

To prevent the color converting try this. Go to Edit (up in the toolbar)> Color settings and turn off CMYK Color Management Policies.

Hope I could help.
