Do I need a center punch even if I use a drill press? I do indeed have a harbor freight nearby, thats where I got my press and dremel.

couldnt I just drill a 3/4" inch hole and then just sand it down with the with a dremel?

This is the punch I got:

For the price and the fact that you "might" need it, I'd get it.

Sure. That's what I did. It's just not real easy.

I don't know what size bit for M3 or M4. I just pick the right size from my set of bits.

Yes, I used a hand drill for all the holes I had to drill.

This depends on how much clearance you would like between the screw and the screw hole

What comes pretty close and tight would be for the 3mm, a #31 drill, and for the 4mm, a #21 drill...

Just joking! Since you'll be using crude methods of layout and drilling, Use a 4mm drill for the 3mm screws and a 5mm for the 4mm screw... That'll leave you .5mm on a side clearance. Even that might be too tight. Drill your holes real close to right on the money.

It's a set of 2 and they both have a 13/16" diameter part. I couldn't find a single bit, only the set of 2.

Awesome thanks. I have a HF near me so I will probably get those when my case comes. In the grand scheme of everything I paid for the build, might as well purchase this.

I have the same center punch and set of step bits from harbor freight. Everything works as expected.

No idea about RPMs but on the step drill don't try to push through to the next "step" too quickly. Let the bit do the work and you can feel when you've gone through each step.
