>Can you please tell me if NCL supports either Vis5d or GrADS formats?

[1] Not sure what you mean by "support"

[2] NCL can read and write Vis5d files:
              [see bottom]
       eg: you could read a netCDF/HDF/binary/ascci file an d
           write a Vis5D output file.
[3] To my knowledge, there is no such thing as a "GrADS format". :-)
    (I think) "GrADS format" refers to a combination of a
    (a) binary file
    and a
    (b) descriptor (text) file that describes
        the contents and data ordering on the binary file.
    Certainly, NCL can read/write the binary files given
    the information on the descriptor files.
