Buying a machine to do start doing a job is a bad idea. You will need to move into doing what you want slowly and see what your machine is capable of time wise. Also what type of machine fits your needs. Do you need side boring and grooving double sided machining drill banks all this needs to be addressed before you jump in. If there is a way to see a unit in operation doing what you want then go and see it don't just go to any shop and see their machine if it is not cutting what you need. You may need a pod and rail over a flat table and if that is the case you may need other tools to accomplish the end product.
i added photos to make my point i am willing to make mdf and lamaika designs (3d designs and 2d designs ) and to have the ability to have the ability to make doors lock hole drilling (sideways)
Yes it can do it.
Can you get the money you need for it?
In my experience, the fun cool stuff doesn't pay as well as the boring repetitive stuff.
Most mid level and up flat table machines can do that. You can get aggregates to do edge bore/routing. Make sure the machine you buy is equipped to handle the aggregates. If you are going to use the aggregates on multiple edges or curves you will need a C-axis. You can put pods on many flat table machines or make risers for clearances.
It depends on what kind of job to do. Usually by times, how much one time service.
Your pictures show 2d cutting and 3d cutting they are going to be different prices as the 3d will take many more hours as the 2d
