1) what’s the difference between two-part epoxy primer like Lechler and two-part epoxy resin adhesive?
They are closely related. It is largely the amount of filler materials and pigments etc that make up the difference.

You can but a) the primer is going to go chalky eventually with UV exposure and b) the whole lot will only be as good as the weakest link. In your case, the varnish. The best adhesion will result from stripping it off.

Anything you like. The epoxy primer is inert and so aerosol car paint or anything else you choose will go on without issue. If you want it classy, I would go to a car paint supplier and get an aerosol made up of a metallic basecoat that you like and an aerosol of 1K lacquer.
