I have a new Sanden compressor that came with my March Serp setup and I want to fill it - can I just use the OTC recharging systems sold at NAPA or do I need to perform a special filling - it is all updated lines o-rings, and parts for the new refrigerant

Since you've had the system open you'll want to pull a vacume on the system for about half an hour before filling, and make sure you've got oil in the compressor.

Did it come with oil pre installed? Need to add that first if not.
Need to pull a vacuum on it to remove all air and moisture from the system. If it holds good vacuum it should be leak free. Then it should be charged with the refrigerant to the proper pressures. New systems have factory weight of charge label on them for a "weighed in charge".
