Hey buddy. I say this with respect but I think you need to read and research the process some more. Do you have a handle on what polish is for example?
The rule you need to run with is always least aggressive first. My first thought would be does it need machining to remove the yellow? It may shift with a good decontamination. If you've tried this already and it hasn't removed it then by all means you can try machining it. The question then is do you really need to jump in with compounding, will a light polish suffice?
If you can categorically say it does need compounding then it would be that followed by a refining polish the an alcohol wipe down then you could use a sealant or wax or both. If both then it's sealant and then wax.
Hope this helps.

A compound and a rotary, do you have a paint thickness gauge? This is quite aggressive. As above, very sound advice. You could be looking at primer before you know it. Try a finishing polish and a light pad first.

It's cool buddy, I meant no offence I promise. You are actually right a polish will add shine. When I was new to it I thought polish and wax were two versions of the same thing.
