If its from a rattle can? That was a little joke. Im sorry.
Nobody would wetsand and buff a rattlecan paint job it wont look any better and you'll just burn the clear off.
If not, follow the instructions because all clears are a little different. Some need to be done within a couple days. It also depends on what kind of clear it is lacquer, enamel ,acrylic enamel, urethane, 1k, 2k etc...
If your new to all this and would like some help, tell us what your trying to do and we can give you some ideas so you don't waste your time going around in circles.

Will wet sanding help get rid of hard tape edges from the clear coat or should I try something else?

If you have a hard tape edge, you prepared it wrong. Or you repaired it right because that's the only way you can "blend" a rattle can clear, I don't know exactly what you did.

But a "hard line" is pretty damn difficult to remove, lightly sanding it then lightly polishing it will leave you less of a hard line but it will still be there. DO NOT try to remove it, you will certainly make a mess.
