Yours was my original interpretation. But then one of my Teachers said Dem-chog is Chakrasamvara in this prayer
. I said Dem-chog is a Sarma Deity and this is a Nyingma prayer. He said Chakrasamvara is not just a Sarma Deity, but then He didn't elaborate further and I didn't want to press the issue in front of other students. Interestingly, this Lama started His career as a Kagyudpa. So He may have been predisposed to interpret Dem-chog this way. In any case, I will revisit this with Him by way of sharing the URLs you so generously posted. I also asked Him about Vajra Dharma/Dorje Cho and He said this was just another name for Amitabha. Again I couldn't really agree. Perhaps a form of Amitabha, but not simply Amitabha per se.
Well, there is more, I had more time to study, so here is something more to take into consideration,
there maybe "interpretations" of this, the translations differ:http://nalandatranslation.org/offerings/notes-on-the-daily-chants/commentaries/great-clouds-of-blessings-supplication-for-magnetizing-the-phenomenal-world/

"The supplication is quite simple in its structure: first we establish a magnetizing palace, with lotus-sun seats, for the nine main deities of the magnetizing padma family to blissfully reside in. The main deities are dharmakaya buddhas Amitabha and Vajradharma, and the nirmanakayas Avalokiteshvara and Padmaraja, one of the eight aspects of Padmasambhava. These are joined by the sambhogakaya yidams and dakinis, Hayagriva, Secret Wisdom, Vajravarahi, King of Desire, and Kurukulla. (See the line drawing and chart for identification of these deities.)"

Some other translations of this prayer:
On Venerable Lama Drimed Rinpoche's websitehttp://www.dechenrang.org/download/prayer_magnetizes.pdf
DEN CHOG DOD PAY GYAL PO DE CHEN TER
Chakrasamvara, Döpé Gyalpo (King of Desire), and Mahadeva,
Rigpa translations has it without Chakrasamvara,
"Dope Gyalpo, King of Desire, ecstasy supreme, source of the wisdom
of great bliss" This is the site given previously with the Wang Du Thangkha.
"Ju Mipham Rinpoche stated, “What’s most important for those who conduct benefitting activities
is to have genuine experience in spontaneous accomplishment of their mind from the pith
instruction. This, however, will not occur if there was the slightest self-benefitting intention. If
one has perfect aspiration to benefit others, then the enlightened activity of Magnetism would be
the most supreme amongst others.
Without the skillful method to spontaneously accomplish one’s mind, ordinary beings would
hardly succeed with their own effort. The skillful method herein is to pray to the Nine Principle
Deities of the Magnetizing Activities by reciting the Nine-Deity mantra and their holy names
The Principle Deities of the Magnetizing Activities are the manifestation of the pristine awareness of
discernment, through which practitioners meditate on to attain the union of bliss and emptiness."
