I assume the rotor from the brake is not fitting back in the caliper.

Do you have mechanical or hydraulic disc brakes?

The wheelchair brake is not touching the wheel on my runabout quint stroller. Can this be adjusted? How?

Not familiar with that brand but looking at the stroller it looks like it uses bicycle brakes. Anyone that is familiar with adjusting bicycle brakes should be able to adjust that for you.

Where the cable attaches to the brake caliper at the front wheel there should be a nut that needs to be loosened, the cable pulled further through the bolt and the nut re-tightened.

Don't use a screw driver. That means you have hydrolic brakes. Take it to a bike shop. It is relatively difficult to open w/o damage it is easy to damage. Also, pick up some disk brake spacers that you put in when you remove the wheel to prevent just this problem.

Back hand brake rubs on pads cannot adjust basic hand brakes

If you can't adjust your brake position by using the adjustment screws you can loosen the wheel bolts and physically change the tires position to make it fit within the brakes. If that doesn't work take you bicycle into your local bike shop and have them check your rim alignment.

How do you remove the reae wheel from a five speed schwinn suburban bicycle

Should just loosen the nuts on each side of the axle. Assuming bicycle is upside down, you then have to lift the chain away from the sprocket as you slide it out of the slots of the frame that the axle fits in.

May have to loosen, adjust or remove the brake pads in order to slide the outer rim/tire through the brake caliper.

Take a picture first, so you can see how to deal with the rear derailer (sp?) when putting the wheel back on.
