If you could somehow get the script to read the swatches palette or the info palette you might get this done...

To get spot color names you'd go to swatches/open swatch library (triangle menu)/Pantone Solid Coated. If you can make that into an action then you'd just have to choose the color you want. List them by 'list view' to see the PMS colors listed by number.
