On the activator question, the answer is NO...It's not a good idea, even if the mix ratio is the same as your activator, you don't know what else is in another manufacturer's product...People have done it and gotten away with it, I've seen people do it and the paint job becomes a big mess...NO.

As far as your "dust or dirt specs" issue, it's hard to tell you what it is without seeing it. It could be dirt or dust, your conditions aren't optimal for a dust free paint job. It wouldn't be solvent popping, to cool for that. I'm not sure I understand when you say you wet sand it and it makes it really dull??? It should make it really dull, you need to polish it after it's wet sanded.
