The only grip you should use is a grip you feel comfortable with and one that gives you the satisfactory results you want, that's my 2 cents.

I'm not sure about a full western grip... but I think it could be possible to hit with slice using a semi-western grip. But can you name people in history who hit their forehand slice with a semi-western or western grip? Because on the other hand I can name a bunch of people who hit topspin forehands and backhands with a continental grip...
