    Could someone give me a comparison between a beer engine and a valterra RP 800 pump

    As far as I can see they should work the same. Obviously a beer engine looks nicer but I can get a new valterra pump compared to an older second hand beer engine.

    The valterra pump I assume also has a smaller pump capacity so you would need to pump more times (which I think is a bonus as you waste less beer when cleaning).

    Link for the valterra pump.

    Thanks in advance

    Your summary is pretty much on the money. A bit of variability with the rocket pump is the sparkler you model.
