I wouldn't refinish the neck unless I really had to. Half the joy of an old guitar is the well worn neck.
I hear you, but unfortunately, instead of a well-worn neck, I have a neck that was haphazardly covered in lacquer in someone's garage

No - Solid shaft pots. Darren Riley has the Fender packaged bits if you're buying new.

That particular seller stocks most parts you'll need for an offset, and he's a reputable guy too.
