Just use standard chain/bar oil available at home centers, hardware stores, and saw dealers. You were obviously dealing with unskilled help at the Ace store! Just top up the oil tank which should be refilled with every fuel fill-up. Nothing magic about this. Hope this helps!
there is a spray chain lube lube that you can buy from any motorcycle supply store, oil just goes everywhere, the special chain lube sticks to the chain and works much better and last 10 times as long.
Unless you are changing sprocket sizes you can not shorten the chain because removing even one link would not allow the ends to connect. Are you adjusting the chain as needed? Why do you want to shorten it?
Even if the factory chain has no master link (some are continuous these days) you can still grind off two pins carefully and push out a link to remove the chain, or simply cut it. That is what you must do when replacing the chain.
