Forget new guide wheels. A new rear derailer is the real fix. You will need to order a new one by the number of gears on the rear gear cluster. How the derailer is mounted, Which way it moves when by the spring direction etc... By the way, get a higher quality one than the one you have got. If you go megawheel on the lower guide wheel; which I recommend, you might need a couple more segments in your chain. Yes, you need a new chain. If you wore out a part on you derailer, your chain is getting old. I recently bought a new rear derailure for my wife's bike for 29 bucks at a much better quality than the old one. It does not have problems of getting between gears, clicking etc... like the old one did new.

Make sure you follow the directions carefully. You might try leaving the flat washers out or substituting thinner ones. Worse case you will have to go to a bicycle shop and purchase a longer axle. Make sure you keep careful track of how you disassembled it and take pictures or make drawings. The hardest part with replacing an axle is getting the proper resistance on both sides so the bearings don't bind. Check www.sheldonbrown.com for some helpful articles.

If the gears will no longer go back on the bike, I would recommend buying a new wheel (including a new rear hub). It is usually easier and more cost effective to buy a wheel than to replace the hub. To replace the hub (the part that is stripped on your bike) you would also have to remove and replace spokes, etc. Search online for the wheel size you need (probably 26" - you can check the tire size) or take to a reliable bicycle shop and they will gladly help you. Anyway, you need a new hub but probably better off getting a new wheel - much easier.

Your bike likely has linear pull brakes so you will need to a. loosen the pinch bolt that holds the brake cable to the noodle (down at the wheel). You then pinch the brake in towards the rim with your hand until it's almost touching and then retighten the cable. You can then do some fine adjustment on how close the brake pads are the rim with the adjusting nuts up at the levers.
