Answer for Varnish vs Lacquer

Lacquer is easily dissolved with lacquer thinner then re-hardens undamaged. Varnish will get sticky and be damaged.

It is possible to "tone" pre-finished cabinets without stripping. Take a look at this page I wrote about restaining with a gel stain; <a href="https://www.house-painting-info.com/restain-cabinets.html">Restain Cabinets for a New Look</a>
