The question is would they need a dedicated starship? Or would they just use which ever starfleet vessel happened to be available?

Surely it would be easier just to use which ever vessel was available.
I agree. However, it seems that the Enterprise (now the Sovereign-class Enterprise-E) is often considered the flagship of the Federation, both symbolically and often actually.

Earlier, though, I think Starfleet Command had envisioned the Excelsior-class ship would be the diplomatic ship of choice, so one of this class would probably have been the UFP President's flagship.

But, with the retirement of most Excelsior-class ships, that question is open for discussion.

What about a Prometheus-class ship?
