Rockhopper Repair Advice

I bought this bike new in 2004 (I think). I've replaced the chain a bunch of times already, but everything is pretty worn out now. I would like to replace the complete groupset, but have no idea what will work. I think what's on it now is Shimano Deore.

- Should I consider go to a 1x11or12? Will this even fit on the stock wheel? The rear frame opening measures 136MM.

- Is there a groupset kit that will include everything needed? Crank, cassette, chain, bottom bracket, etc...

- The shifters are integrated into the brake levers. Will I need new levers if I delete the shifters?

- Do I bother considering doing a disc brake upgrade here? The frame has the caliper mounting points on it already, but not sure if it's worth doing.
