Does namecoin work exactly the same way for priv/pub addresses. Can I use the same pair as a namecoin address and a bitcoin address. Can I use what is generated here:
https://www.bitaddress.org/
to create a namecoin address?

Also, is their a blockexplorer for namecoin? What about a nice friendly gui interface that will work on my mac for my wallet?

Namecoin uses same algorithm but a valid namecoin address begins with an N not a 1.  Unless the code was designed to produce namecoins address/key pairs it won't work.  Doesn't look like bitaddress does.

Check here for a GUI, there's a Java one so I think it could work on a mac.

Can anyone point to something that will just create a priv/pub pair.

I don't actually want to have the client running, I just want to buy some namecoins off someone, and have an address to store them at (in case some day in the future they are worth something).

An alternative is to use an exchange account.  I don't know of a standalone key generator for namecoin.  You could also install client, generate a wallet and export 1+ sets of keypairs and then remove client/wallet.

That site is pretty solid, it's definitely an easy way to buy some then worry about moving them a little later on.

Run this in pywallet directory:
Code:
tr -dc a-f0-9 < /dev/urandom | head -c 64 | xargs ./pywallet.py --info --importhex --otherversion 52 --importprivkey

It will give you something like:
Code:
Address (Namecoin): NJFPUnVCWkydLxF8QUCW7aeWG51weGj9uB
Privkey (Namecoin): 744ZPRLRJ1d9WGcb8MBmVPkS2cgFyCGnateqhq8Rm3wLu1UZHay
Hexprivkey: 9968c22c6091e18589496d6d378a29654ef4e350a5aded88c972e05a9fbb0a88


PS: you might want a better source of entropy
