Can I use my random orbital for polishing as opposed to buying another tool? It has variable speed of 8000-12000rpm

You can but be very careful not to burn your paint at those speeds. If you know what you are doing it should not be an issue.

Check out this kit from Chemical Guys. It has a 15% off coupon right now so that should help with the sticker shock. I started with something like this and works great. Watching a couple of Youtube vids helps also.
