If using cPanel check out xVarnish. Pretty easy integration with a lot of functionality.

I am also having a hosting using cPanel. Where to enable xVarnish?

When I use xVarnish, can I use other caching solution like memcached or opcache?

Absolutely, they are not related and different forms of caching from varnish.
