I think the form you are looking for is 2^n-k. You can do a Google search for "Dual Sierpinski problem" to find more details.

NewPGen supports the sieving of b^n+/-k with fixed k.

As for sieving multiple k's one after the other, I think you should be able to use the "Sieve Until..." Option. Here you can set stop criteria for how far to sieve a single k, and the increment the k and move on.

You might also want to look at PFGW for such things, since you'll also be able to test the candidates for primality.
