this brings me to my question however: Do you need to use the TOB with this kit, or can you use the TOB that comes with your clutch package (exedy OEM for example)

For push clutches, yes. The typical snout repair sleeve slides over the existing snout making it a larger diameter. The standard/OEM ToB has an ID that is too small to fit, thus a different ToB when using the repair kit.

For pull clutches, I would assume it's the same, so no clue why an ACT clutch wouldn't work.

Note, this is part of why, when doing work by the clutch, it's a good idea to clean the trans snout, lightly smooth any rough spots, then lube the snout before assembling. It reduces the wear from the ToB on the snout.
Also not driving forever on a failing ToB also helps. If the bearing gets too bad, the spinning clutch will spin it on the snout.
