Using Elements+ for Soft-Proofing?

I'm using Elements+ plugged into PSE14.  Monitor (Dell U2312HM) has been calibrated with ColorMunki Display.  I'd like to use Elements+ Soft-Proofing ability, but not sure how to do it.  Printing to be done at Walmart, but don't have their printer's ICC profile.  A few questions:

1. Do I select "Preserve RGB numbers"?

2. Do I select "Black point compensation"?

3.  If Yes or No to 1 & 2, why?

4.  As a test just to see what things look like on the monitor when SP'ing, I chose an ICC from Costco. The image was darker than the original. Also of note, is that I've been using Walmart for my printing and their prints are also darker than the originals as seen on the monitor.  So, my question is when given that commercial prints are darker than their original monitor images, what does one do get the image to come closer to the original monitor image???  Could it be one has to take the image back into PSE and by trial and error try to match it up with the SP'ed image???

Thanks.
