Many thanks for the info. However, they did not change my luck for the better:
Step 1: I went through each step to an avail. At this juncture, I only need my files. I connected a 1TB WD Passport to my MBP and through disk utility tried to create a read/write image. After about 5hrs, it had only completed about 7-8% of creating the image, which should not be the case. So, step 1 failed.
Step 2: done.
Step 3: Safe mode gets stuck in the same grey screen with apple logo.
Step 4: As originally stated: No change.
Step 5: As originally stated: Disk Volume and Permissions are both fine.
Step 6:Done. No change (Also stated in my original post).
Step 7: Need a copy of my files before formatting the boot volume. Refer to Step 1 of this post. Any guidance will be much appreciated.

Try option (b) or (c) to back up the data. It may be too late, if the drive has failed completely. In that case, you're looking at a very expensive professional recovery operation.
