Well, blacked plugs generally means it's burning oil. If that's the case, then that would explain the lack of power (oil isn't gonna give you the power gas would), Or it's running really rich, something else that'd foul the plugs.
Plugs and wires aren't going to solve your problem. For some reason, your engine is either sucking oil, or running really rich on acceleration. I also don't think it's a clutch problem at all.
Worst case, I think your rings might be shot. But that's worst case. I'd check your fuel system/delivery stuff. Go through your dirty hands book and check things like your thottle position sensor and make sure that's all working right. Timing would be another easy thing to check. Make damn sure that everything is running to spec before you start buying parts.
