Not Black Speech, you're right. Morgoth invented some kind of language for Angband, but we don't even have a name for it.
I was thinking of having Sauron and Shelob develop Black Speech down the line in the Second Age. Maybe Sauron and Morgoth develop this speech to hide their movements?...

There would have been some sort of Melkian language in Anfband, probably a predecessor for Sauron´s invented language.

Some of our Orc Names, Boldog, Gorgol, Lug, Othrod would come from that language.

I think the Sauron-Shelob connection shouldn't be overplayed...
Sauron calls her his cat, to him she´s a halfblood or some degenerate thing, not even really a maia, and to her - she´s only into eating and growing and breeding lesser spiders, she doesn´t care for Sauron´s schemes too much.

For Balrog weapons, maybe they can make their flames into axes, swords, knives, clubs, but not complex objects like bows? Kind of like the T-1000?
