bike parts for apollo fs26se and brake maintenance help please

Is anyone able to advise me as to which brake pads I need to order for a Apollo FS 26 se mountain bike? I need to replace only the front brake as the back brake is still fine.

Also, the brakes need tightning for the back brake but I cannot find any information on how to do this? I know it should just be a simple case of adjusting the cable down by the disc brake but this appears to have not made much difference, so I am assuming it is a case of adjusting something by the brake lever.

For the pads, have you tried Halfords, as this is one of their own brand bikes?

I checked with Halfords on their website by finding an old post on the forum but that just said to go in to my local store to ask... where they will probably try and sell me the more expensive options.
