I have a Microsoft Word (.doc) document that uses
colour-coded text: black, red, blue, green. If I
print this document as a black-and-white paperback
book via a self-publish POD (print on demand)
printer, what will become of the colours? Will
they show up as various shades of grey? If so,
will the greys be solid or dithered? Thanks.

Yes it'd be various shades of gray.
Since a B&W laser dithers anything that is not solid black,
including when you intend to print gray, yes it's
dithered... but at a fine enough scale that it will look
gray and not with large dithering artifacts. That is
assuming a decent quality printer, some dither better than
others but it is a function fairly well refined many years
