You're in the right spot, then!

The best way to upgrade your pets really depends on how much of a hurry you are in. If you're like me, and impatient, then get started on the Pandaria pet battle circuit ASAP and do that every day. That burns you out quick, though, even when you get used to the carry-pet strategies and can do it with your eyes closed in your sleep. And it's a bit RNG dependant since some days you'll get more stones than others. But it also helps you level your own stable, and drops a few pets that still sell quite well (on my server, at least).
The WoD circuit has a smaller amount of trainers, but rewards charms which makes it a lot less RNG dependant and also allows you to pick which pet you want to upgrade first, rather than having to upgrade another aquatic pet because you got another aquatic stone when you really want to upgrade your emerald whelpling or whatever instead.
If you just do the Menagerie battles every day (the one in your menagerie as well as using group finder to get Erris) you get charms as well. This is a relatively small amount of time invested on your part, and the trickle of charms can add up (especially if you happen to have alts). However, this is probably the slowest way.
