Creating custom color pallet - IDCS2 - Adobe Indesign Windows

I need to create a custom color pallet for InDesign that can be recalled/downloaded by users of InDesign. 1. How would I create and export the color pallet (approx 100 colors) as a template. 2. Is there a way to use change settings so only the imported custom color pallet is available for use in InDesign, in place of the existing color pallets. Thanks....

    Save the file as a template.

    No. Anyone who loads your colours (from the "Load" command in the Swatches palette) would still have access to the colours already in thier file. Anything different would be completely bizarre.

    Haven't done this myself yet, so I'm not certain it's what you want, but I think if you set up your swatches palette with just the colors you have in mind you can select "Save Swatches for Exchange" from the palette flyout and save a file containing your custom palette that can be handed off to anyone and accessed through the "load" command in the flyout.
