Good news on the rear splines!
The brake cleaner should be fine to use on the splines and driveshaft connector. I believe it doesn`t leave any residue.

Yes, Honda Moly 60 lube seems to be the #1 choice here.

On the "hardly working" rear brake, are the actuating cam and any other moving parts, seized up at all, or moving freely?

Not sure why the rear brake adjuster is so close to the end of the threads.
Is there any chance it has been broken or cut shorter?
(If you think it might be, measure the length and post it so one of us can measure ours and compare it.)

Where did the brake wear indicator point to on the hub?
