Here a couple quick vids I shot addressing bugs on cars...
You're smart for wanting to get them off your paint ASAP due to the p[permanent staining that can happen as others have mentioned.

That was from a 400 mile drive for the day
I totally get the DIY for car care but for your bug damage I would seriously consider getting a professional detailer to do the paint correction followed by ceramic. As far as regretting PPF this would also be a great time for a full frontal PPF as well prior to the ceramic.

What's so hard about a DA buffer that you need a professional for?

Working with the public at a detail shop I can answer your question... "Plenty, for most people!"
We're always fixing DIY DA buffer jobs by courageous owners who watched a couple Chemical Guys videos and have their YouTube degree.
The funniest ones are the owners who STILL think they know more than you even though they've had to come to a career professional to fix their attempt.
