Noob question

Hi I'm a total noob to this level of cleaning.
I have some hard surface cleaner I use like a pre wash, then I use 2 bucket method,
I use a lambs wool mot to shampoo (mcguires gold) and snow foam when really bad. and a bug sponge to rinse by hand and a pressure washer to wet car and rinse at end.
Dry with a waffle cloth and some cheap microfibre cloths.
I really want to up my game.
I have a real old Honda Civic that really needs full works and I have a very motorcycle that I want to keep that way.
With the myriad of brushes, towels and products. I'm getting really bogged down in details.

Could someone please help.
List I have
Detail brushes buy a set for inside set for outside
Apc- was thinking about bunny some valet pro classic?
Microfibre cloths - need some help. What do u actually need ? Sort pile, Ned pile long pile , Korean ? Which ones are for what ?
I'm guessing you have
Application, wipe clean,drying and buffering types.
Upholstery of car is very dirty from being used as a builder skip during rubble removal. So needs a strong cleaner and good brushes. Someone recommend McGuires super degreaser and I can use it in engine bay too.
I have a long handled wheel brush but it's not really that great. Halford one that really doesn't get into the wheel properly.
Clay bar -ariel gxr ? does brand matter ?
Wax - any recommendations
You guys make it look so easy. I'm in awe of you rejuvenating expertise.
Sorry if there is a noob FAQ but I didn't see it.
Thanks guys

Agree with the above but for a full set of detailing brushes I'd go for http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acata...MasterRGBS0000 or cheaper and still good quality http://www.envyvaleting.co.uk/products-info.asp?id=151
