I want to run both but I'm not sure how I would fit the daemon prince into the army. And to be honest, the way I'm seeing this army is how I would build it if I was a Night Lord and personally, I don't approve of chaos but they sure as hell make good weapons. I've actually been looking into running the hellforged warpack cause I like the idea of two forgefiends and a helbrute just sounds amazing.
It's a rather potent formation since it allows you to use Daemonforge each turn which is pretty great. The 4++ on one of them is also good, especially for an Helbrute since they don't have invulnerable save by default.

And my other thing is If I just run a CWB and a CAD I can have my daemon prince and link my heavy units into that and have my backup marines and raptors.
If I was you, go toward the road that interest you the most at first and build the standard army that you want. Then, later on, you can decide to expand your army and try to field the Raptor Talon. Or it might be the daemon prince that you want to keep for later. Personally, I only got my daemon prince relatively late in my army building and I haven't fielded it that often.
If I was in your shoes, I would probably first try to get a functional Chaos Warband as this pretty much the best basic army that Chaos can field at the time. Then, you can graft formations to it so that you can field your Murder Talon detachment. In this perspective, the DP could be a later purchase. I think you should first make a kit bashed Chaos Lord on bike as your warlord as this quite night lordish and also very effective. Alternatively, it could be a jump pack one if you prefer and have a Raptor unit that he can join (or Warp Talons, but they are overpriced and you don't like them). That should keep you busy for quite some time. Later on, you can chose to buy what is necessary for the second formation you want in your army. Having played a few smaller games will give you a better idea of what you want to add the most in your army. The most obvious way to add a daemon prince is by taking it as a Lord of the Legion Command choice. Having the points to field him is more complicated, but you can figure it out later when you have more game experience.

EDIT- I could just run CAD and RapT and I think that would solve my previous problems......
Yes, this would work. I feel that the Chaos Warband is better than the CAD overall, but the later has the advantage of being more flexible in what you can take in the force.
