That's a low mileage Wing especially considering the year. Congrats on the lucky find!,,

There are two places where gearbox oil can leak into the combustion process: from the gasket between the two engine case halves, or from the crank seal on the right hand end of the crankshaft. The most likely culprit is the crankshaft seal.
The sputtering was a bit of water in the bad gas you got and the smoke was probably from a bit of diesel fuel that was put into a gasoline storage tank in error. The temp guage going bad is just one of those things that happen from time to time, probably just a bad sensor. The idle speed change is a bit quirky but easy to adjust. Stick a fresh set of plugs in the bike and the starting problem should clear up.
Sounds like the engagement dogs(not the teeth) have rounded off of second gear possibly combined with a bent/worn shift fork. Common problem on older Yammy trannys that have been shifted from first to second too hard too many times. The parts are not too expensive but the labor sure is.... the engine has to be split open to get at them.,,,
