Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

The computations look right but namecoin difficulty is 547,532.38 and they are worth ~ 0.004 BTC ea.

Of course you can mine BOTH namecoin and bitcoin at the same time using merged mining so mining ONLY namecoin would be silly even if it was more profitable than Bitcoin.
