In the Key of Solomon, some of the workings utilise angels to make the spirits do what you require them to do. The Spirits of Venus they refer to are not necessarily angels, although Nogahiel is. I'm not calling them demons either...but if they are being controlled, they are not angels.
The angels can be utilised to control the lessor spirits for want of a better term. (like the way Rudd uses the Shem ha-Mephorash angels to counter the Goetia). You're not going to boss it (angel or archangel) around though. In whose name would you order it about?
In my opinion, you also will not get an angel to screw with someone's freewill either.
You do not need an $800 gold seal. Parchment/card/paper works. Follow the KOS sections on blessing and consecrating the ink, the paper and the incense etc. Even the KOS says that's fine if you can't use metal ones.
