The bearings are greased and sealed. A shop will install for around 1/2 hour labor. You can do it also using a correct sized socket to drive them in. Drive against the outer race only...not the inner. A little grease around the outer race of the bearing eases assembly into the wheel hub. If they (bearings) are tight, drop bearings in freezer first for a few hours and leave wheel out in the hot sun. I put grease under the dust seals, anything will work, but I use Bel Ray, waterproof grease. Regrease the old axle and make sure it is straight. If new axle...grease it up good so it doesn't rust.
Clutch has been answered. Find your leak if applicable. A new clutch slave (the bottom one) cylinder complete is not too much money or replace the seal only.
If your f. wheel got damaged I would look very closely at the forks/triple clamps and probably loosen and let them reseat themselves again. Retighten. There is a procedure for doing this so the forks will not bind.

If it is not broken, it can still be fixed
