Track cycling - Bike, Gearing, Kit advice please 😊

Hi Guys
Thanks for your advice in the last 2 posts iíve done 😊
Based on the guidance iíve just got on with it and got a basic entry level road bike and have just completed my acccredittaion.
Im now doing SQTís with a sprint focus and turbo and road sessions (them hills omg)
Iíve lost weight, got stronger and made some good progress in the gym and now up to 1400 watts and 200rpm spinning out on a lower gear.
I have been using the track bikes you hire that have an 86Ē and an planning to get a track bike.
So I wanted to ask any guidance on a track bike for a newby sprinter? Iíve been reccomend Dolan pre cursa aluminum track bike
Also what gearing would you reccomend getting on it?
As mentioned I raced at a good level in bmx before and iím pretty strong (180kg-400Ib full squat) @ 90kg
Also what cleats would you reccomend? Ones with no movement or ones with 6 degrees of movement?
Thanks in advance
Loving this new cycling journey 😊
