Did you try 'M-x calc' ?  This is how I start calc-mode in Aquamacs.
M-# is indeed not bound to anything even after calc-mode is started.
The use of 'M-x calc-embedded' command that I'm familiar with is to
mark a region containing an expression that calc can evaluate, and
using 'M-x calc-embedded' to have calc evaluate the region.

Cheers, José
