    hi m8
    get rid of the pads that come with it and get some mequiars or sonus pads 7 and 4 inch,
    as for polishs it all down to personal choice but i use the poorboys swirl removal stuff and the blackhole glaze.
    if you use a swirl remover use the finest one first untill you get the hang of it.
    slow and gentle and check you work all the time and you should be fine.

    Rotary's have a female fitting backing plate and the DA's have male fittings. I bought a silverline and was in the same boat as you but I got a semi-decent backing with mine.

    I went for yellow pads - AFAIK, they are the fine ones so not too abrasive.

    Pad example

    backing plate example

    I got my stuff from polished bliss and they were great. I paid too much for postage (yes, I am stupid!) and they refunded immediately! And items arrived within 2 days.
