1st: can u give me a quick explanation of the 2 bucket washing method?
Sure, quick it is:
Wash Bucket = Warm water + Shampoo
Rinse Bucket = Warm water
You scoop out the water+shampoo with your washing mitt from the Wash bucket and wash a panel.
After you are done with that panel, you wash your mitt on the Rinse Bucket, so all the dirt you picked up is cleaned out of the mitt so you do not put it back on the paint. Also you do not want to contaminate the fresh water+shampoo that you will use for the other panels, reason why you have a bucket only to rinse the mitt.
2nd: i have a jetblack m5 and was wondering if i need to be even more careful with this color, (ive never detailed in a process like yours which i am trying to do the same to mine) and never used a orbital buffer but im borrowing one from my friend but i understand that i can ruine the paint with too much pressure so any tips would be helpful
Jet Black M5, so lucky!
To be honest, if you never had any experience whatsoever with Detailing, I would be very careful before you attack your paint, even when using a Orbital Polisher (they are rather harmless but they able to correct something).
I recommend that you read a few tutorial and practice on some less valuable panels before you jump to your car!
These two websites are great resources:

3rd:never heard of the fast cut plus idk what its even used for as well as not knowing the application process, as well as the menz 3.02, menz 106fa, and the menz 85rd
3M Fast Cut Plus is a compound. You should not use this product if you have no experience with polishing!
The Menzerna you listed (Menz for short) are respectively, a polish, a final finish polish and a super final finish polish (If you can can even call it that).
4th: zymol hd cleanse and zymol concours you apparently use at the end to finish, what is zymol concours? and do you do any of these steps by hand?
sorry if i asked alot of questions but hopefully it will answer alot of others questions
ps: i recently emptied everything out of my garage so i have time for tlc on the car...thanx again
Zymöl HD Cleanse is a glaze/Pre wax cleaner, it prepares the paint to lay down the wax.
Zymöl Concours is a Wax, which will protect the finish you just created with all the polishing.
These two products are applied gently by hand after all the correction and jeweling process is done.
