$100 Walmart bike shaped object when it was new. If it needs anything more than inner tubes and shift/brake cables it isn't worth fixing.

I don't believe those rims can be run tubeless. It's ok to put tubeless tires on those rims and put a tube in. Tubeless..... the rim probably won't seal.

Get a universal claw derailleur hanger/adapter and then get any 7-9 speed derailleur. An older Deore/LX, or similar, (eBay) out of the 90’s and be done with it.
