Clearing over decals. And lettering over clear?

I bought an old coke machine that my son and I are restoring. It has some vinyl decals that go on after paint. Can I apply those after the base coat and clear over decals?
Next question, is it also has a raised embossed writing on the top that says Coca Cola. It will need to be hand painted with a brush red paint over the white base.
Should I clear and then take to a sign painter for the red lettering? Or intercoat clear, then take to sign painter, then clear?
