Slow down, practice with a metronome. That's the best way to do it. Speed is a byproduct of accuracy, and it will come with time.

What kind of picking? Tremelo? Sweep? Alternate?

Maybe, maybe not; the key thing is whether or not you placing your hand on the guitar causes your movement to be restricted or if it makes you tense up at all. If either or those things are true then you need to stop.

your picking hand isn't too slow, neither is your fretting hand "too fast". What you need to concentrate on is getting your hands to work together, so slow it down to the speed at which you can play it accurately with both hands synchronised and go from there.
