Where is the best place to take a single diamond?
Lots depends on what you want to do with the single diamond.
You can sell it to a jeweler; you can commission a setting and a piece of jewelry; you can barter it for some other thing; you can ask an appraiser to evaluate the stone; you can ask a diamond cutter to re-cut the stone, and so forth.
The best thing to do is take it to a reputable dealer in town, unless you have a great deal of experience in telling whether a diamond is genuine or not. Also, if you have a diamond that you KNOW is genuine, you can place both of them, side by side, on a black cloth & compare the 2. It is pretty obvious to the naked eye the difference when they are side by side…
Short answer: yes, to any jeweler who buys diamond rings. Longer answer: find a jeweler interested in giving you fair value for your diamond.

Don't take it off when you wash your hands or apply lotion, just don't apply the lotion to the diamond…
One carat of diamond in a single diamond is worth more than multiple diamonds -- or chips in this case -- is worth. Any diamond is valued by its cut, colour, clarity and carat weight. Anything is worth whatever someone will pay you for it. You can take your chips to a jeweler who makes jewelery and sell them there.

Best practices dictate that if you want any control whatsoever over the size and geometry of the smaller pieces, that you take your diamond to a diamond cutter and pay to have it 'broken' into smaller pieces. If you don't care about the smaller pieces, or the value of the diamond, you could hit the diamond with a hammer and see what happens.
'Smoked diamond' can be assumed to describe a diamond coated with some kind of smoke that adheres to the stone. You can try warm, soapy water with a soak then a rinse under running water. If the smoke remains, best practices dictate that you take your diamond to a local jeweler who can help you clean it.
