Default Building a

Ok so to start off im completely new to co2. I have been running diy with yeast and sugar for a few months and i want to get something more consistent

I ordered a cheap regulator online for lack of funds. In the future i plan on replacing it with something more high end. But for now it will have to do.
The output on it is 1/4" FNPT.
Im thinking of getting clipboard solenoid, and fabco nv-55 needle valve.

There are a few options on clipboard and im not sure which is ideal. How do i get everything to fit together. Do i get the 1/4 solenoid and find the connections at home depot. If so would there be fittings that will be able to connect 1/4 to 10/32 for the needle valve.
And for voltage there are a few different options, does that matter?
I know these question might seem simple, and they did to me a few hrs ago. But now after going from site to site i cant seem to make a decision and could use some input. Any help would be great
