Cutting compound. Used to go through large blemishes in a finish when using a orbital.

Wet sand yes using a super fine grit paper.

Then use a really good / polish and random orbital.

Then wax...

The only thing I found online about flat clear and fixing orange peel was to adjust the spray nozzle to eliminate it... I suspect wet sanding will make it more gloss... Just not sure. May want to practice on some spare metal... Paint, clear just like you did. Then experiment wet sanding/polishing.
