Yes, quite more complicated, I think!

For vinyl records clicks and pops are the most common problem, for 78's you
have surface noise in addition.

There are a number of opinions when restoring those old records, since
compromises are always a matter of fact.
Some like to "tailor" the sound and make it sound more "as new", like the
late Robert Parker, who added reverb and stereo effects to make it sound
"fresh". He made a whole CD-series called "Jazz Classics in Digital stereo",
that many likes and many hates. 

Other engineers like to restore the sound as close to the original recording
as possible, that often means a minimum of technical experiments. They like
to stay "purist".

I guess here are as many opinions as restoring engineers.....

Thanks, since this is my hobby, it may be a little out of reach, but anyway
it seems to be "the one", so I'll start reading and I may buy the books and
tutorials to decide.

The question now is: How much is it really specialized on 78rpm disks?

The noise patterns seems to me very common and different from those on 33rpm
or 45rpm records

Am I right?

Don't know so much about Cedar, since that's pretty expensive. But here is
another affordable and quite good software for sound restoration of old 78's
and so on:
