Can I scan a negative 4X5 black\white to make a photo

In general, yes, you can scan a negative and make a photo from it. I don't really know your model scanner, my Canon 8400f has a film adapter and a light in the cover, but would have to scan a 4x5 in sections and I would have to piece it together after scanning.
The results I get from scanning negs are very good, as good as I ever got in my darkroom.

Grayblue Background on scans

A color scan will give real output as it is. If the background is grey, the output will also be grey. If you select 256 Color output, there may be small change in color, as compared to the original. If you select grey output, all colors will be converted to Grey. If these files are converted to PDF, it will be same, except in ODF format.

If you select B&W you can save the file in TIFF format. Unlike grey or color, each pixel can be either black or white only. To scan in black and white you must select right brightness. By doing os you can eliminate background (technically noise) and capture foreground(data)
