I'd call them {qechmey Sar}, "various ideas".

{-Hey} doesn't make something less defined, it makes it less certain.
The word {qechHey} means "something that seems like an idea, but I'm
not sure that's what it really is".

Klingons apparently wouldn't. :-)  There's a common saying:
"A Klingon may be inaccurate, but he is never approximate."

>my second question is has anyone heard of a tlhIngan technical manual?

I'm not aware of an official manual, but there is a poster displaying a
cutaway view of a {bI'rel tlharghDuj} "B'rel-Class Scout" having many
technical callouts and specifications, all given in tlhIngan Hol with
English translations.
