What to Do with Grey-Barred Pages?

My question pertains to new content that never seems to get a pagerank (at least according to the toolbar). This question is not about pages with pagerank then suddenly turns grey barred, but new pages.

I have this antiquated site (think Frontpage 2003). I have resisted bringing it to the 21st century because it works so well with Adsense (too scared with messing with something that works), though I have updated sections of the site (e.g. moved the blog to Wordpress)

For this site, we have an average of 80 pages per month (static site; excludes sections on Wordpress). All of them linked from one page - the month's archives.

My questions are:

1. How does a page get a pagerank?

What I can't understand is how can some pages get a pagerank soon, while others can never get any pagerank? I have pages with 50+ tweets but still grey barred while some have 0 tweets yet gets white barred a month or so?

2. What do you do to a page is perpetually grey barred?

These are good content. Some have been tweeted, some none. I sometimes link them to their topic categories to increase internal links.

What do you do with content that never seems to get pagerank -- and traffic? Most of these pages that gets grey barred hardly get any traffic.

Do you abandon them?
Do you repurpose them?
Do you put more links on them?

1. The PR of a page it's calculated (I think) by the average of PR from all the pages that link to your page.

Hopefully you understand that from my lame English.
