For detailing pads I go with lake county. IMO they have worked wonders for me.
For sealant - blue pad
Hard cutter like m105 - orange pad
Light cutter like m205 - white pad
Here is what I use, granted everyone is different:
Wax - poor boys 50/50 wax
Sealant - black fire paint sealant
Cutters to remove swirls - m105 and 205
Quick detailer - poorboys spray and wipe.
Quick wax poorboys spray and wax.
To polish exhaust tips - 1000 grit steel wool with meguiars mag and aluminum polish. Can be used to polish other things.
Clay bar - NanoSkin AutoScrub Fine Foam Pad. This is gods gift IMO. You use the pads on your buffer and put it on speed 1. You spray the car with clay lube and once done with the area wipe it off. Cuts clay bar time down in half.
The site I get my stuff off is detailedimage.com. They have reviews on there and if you have questions you ask them. They have helped me choose what to use and to buy. It's up to you what you get.
