There are many companies that manufacture this type of paint and in different finishes from primers all the way up to high gloss enamels. Most can be over coated with a waterborne poly but you should check with the manufacturer to insure there are no incompatibility issues with their products.

The Waterbased oil enamel are quite durable and I would not think you would need to overcoat it with poly unless it is an extremely high service area.

1) if you are planning on 2 coats, yes. For 3 coats, you could just sand prior to the 3rd.

2) you probably could put a clear poly or lacquer on top, but not sure why you'd think that necessary. The oil-water hybrid paints are pretty tough on their own. A top coat doesn't add much, if any, protection. It would also interfere with the ability to do repairs to the finish
