I would agree with your thought process.

A few tips....

Seriously think about dropping £100 on a machine polisher (plenty to choose from, some are way more expensive). Have a read on this forum
As this thread says, hand Tcutting can easily mean you go too deep. Caution, it can become addictive.

Get some decent clear lacquer (eg Upol), the cheap stuff won't cut back nicely.

I would probably prep and lacquer up to the crease line on the bonnet as it will be easier (certainly less visible) to feather in the edge at a change in surfaces.

The spots on the wing are probably cement, the strong alkaline content discolours paint, it will polish off (much better with a machine)

Hope that helps, the other option is somebody like chipsaway who will charge around £150 for the job.

The normal charge for chipsaway is £75 per panel, although it might have gone up since brexit/Ukraine war etc.

Reviews for them don't suggest that they do a great job though. I have found a painter in a local run down industrial estate, of you can find one they can often be the best option.
