You can develop the B/W and e6 film at home with the right chemistry, there used to be a spool/tank made for developing 8mm film at home.
Bolex is quiet good but you pay a premium, the Eumig C3 is just as good at a lower price. The Pathé DS8/BTL Double Super 8 is another good choice. 8mm cameras usually have better registration than their Super 8 cousins unfortunately 8mm isn't as available as Super8.

Good luck
You don't want to use DS8 (Double Super 8) in that Bolex D8L. It takes Regular 8. I don't think Bolex ever made a double super 8 camera but there are aftermarket conversions of H8 Rex cameras out there.

Here are a few threads on Regular 8 Bolex cameras:
