The hand brake hardly ever needs ajusting. See your hand brake mechanincly spreads your rear brake shose inside the drum. Therefore just replace your rear shoes and make sure there ajusted right and you should have no more problems with that part of your car. PS make sure you put some 3M paste on the contact points on your backing plate to avoid a squeak in the near future.

Firstly put the hand brake on and loosen the wheel nuts, jack the car and remove the wheel, if you turn the wheels out so you have a better view. then remove the 2 10mm bolts from the rear of the brake caliper, there will be a hard tough wire coming over then brake caliper pop this off with a screw driver or pliers. now open the bonnet and remove the cap from the brake fluid bottle. once done leave it off and then retun to the brakes, get a flat screw driver and place it between the inner most brake pad and the brake disc then push the 2 apart, once these have been moved lift the caliper off and the brake pads should come free. the caliper has a cylider/ round part that pushes the pads against the disc ensure that the cylider is pushed right back into the caliper using some big grips large pliers. once the cylinder is right back you should be able to fit the new pads. replace all the parts in reverse order, but before putting the wheel back on push the brake pedal several times until the pedal feels hard. then replace the wheel and do the other side. once complete check the fluid level on the brake fluid and replace the cap.
This is a fairly easy job should take a novice about 40mins a side but if your quite savvy with cars then you can complete the whole job in about an hour.
Hope this helps if not please get back to me so I can be more accurate, and talk you through it.
