I finally purchased a Santoku knife (a MAC). Okay to sharpen with Chef's Choice electric sharpener?

There is an inexpensive sharpener that works well with MAC. You can find it on MAC's website: http://www.macknife.com/kitchen/products-by-style/the-rollsharp.html

Thank you, Peter.

How about a paring knife? Is there a life-changing paring knife I need to buy?!

Likely not. According to this page of their website, only 1 of the electric models is recommended for "Asian-style" knife -- the M1520.

As far as the manual sharpeners, they don't have a comparison chart I can find, but you can look up your model on this page:

In general, congratulations! Santoku's are life-changing as far as I'm concerned.
