Teeth look fine. There's some wear but the more prominent grooves are the shift ramps. Give it a quick tune up and see how it rides. If you're the OCD type then you'll want new components anyway.

That's weird that they left the dropout like that. Should have made it horizontal or made it convertible to accept a RD.

I feel like we're missing the part of the story of how the oil got onto the rim in the first place.

But yes, try different/new pads.

Yes most likely will need a new rear wheel. New BB to match your crank. 68mm shell BB, 24mm spindle crank. For the FD you can get a braze on adaptor clamp to fit a braze on FD around a seat tube.

Assuming v-brakes, and the tire is hitting the cable at the top between the clinch bolt and noodle, you'll either need to get narrower tires or look for other brakes that provide more clearance.

Are you certain it's not just the various shift ramps on the cogs that give the illusion that it's not true? Perhaps the old 7sp cassette did not have very prominent shift ramps (if at all)?

I second the checking of the b screw. Confirm it's not preventing the rd from threading on flush, and also maybe back off a few turns so that there's less distance between the top pulley and the cogs.
