Compression reading look great.
To pressurize, if you want to go the route you mentioned that would work, then just come up with a coupler to attach your compressor too. If you have a compression tester (with a quick release coupling) or cylinder leakdown tester you should be able to make either one of those work, we always just used a leakdown tester, works fine with no modifications.
If you have a pressure tester, test the coolant leak with a stone-cold engine, and watch the drivers side of the block near the oil filter for drips coming from under that heater hose down onto the block, then the drip runs down the back of the head and down the other side of the block, really sounds like the classic "heater hose nipple o-ring" leak, very confusing as it drips on the other side of the engine.
