User6527 is wrong there. You can not use derailleur shifters due to the different cable length that is pulled or pushed to shift to another gear. You can not use other brands' shifters either for the same reason. The shifter you mention yourselve is available in black and silver, and both with and without integrated brake lever. There is also a 'cheaper' ...

Choosing a grip is a matter of personal preference. If you're worried about the fact that the Nexus shifters require a smaller grip on one side than the other (due to the shifter taking up room), you can get grips that are made to mate with an internal hub shifter like the Nexus.

That comes down whether the internal mechanism of the different Nexus 3 hubs are the same or not. My guess is they are the same. Some options for you: I had a similar issue with a Nexus 8 hub. In the end I checked with a Shimano approved service center in near me (looked up on Shimano's page). I talked in person to the mechanic, and he knew which would ...

I have a Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub and have similar ticking sounds. I suspect it's the various parts of the planetary gear meshing and rolling against each other. It's a pretty complex little mechanism.
