You couldn't go with a 29er, because the wheel sizes are vastly different (559mm as opposed to 622mm).

Sounds like you're getting everything you need for it. With the cassette - they're cheap enough that it would behoove you just to replace it (you can get a 7-8 speed freewheel or cassette for $20-30), but on the other hand, if it isn't damaged, just riding it will clean off the rust.
