Is there ad difference between a Silver Screen and a Gray screen. That is to say, Gray screens pull out black on PJ's high brightness/low blacks. Do the Silver do the same thing?

Yes...but Silver in the proper concentration allows for more Black level enhancement without sacrificing as much if any gain, while also making colors and whites more vibrant than a Gray would allow.

Advanced mixes that use a preponderance of Silver metallic additive usually incorporate White Pearlescence and a White or Gray base to balance out the Silver's overt reflectivity.
