Break drums are smoking after I replaced the break shoes

Sounds like you adjusted the brake shoes too far out and they are dragging (rubbing) on the inside of the drum. Back off the adjustments; the wheel should turn freely and stop only when you just begin to apply the brakes. The other thing that could be wrong is that the emergency brake is engaged; release the emergency brake.

Brakes rubbing

it sounds like your caliper is sticking you may have to take off your brake pads and rotor and grease up the caliper you can have the best rotors and brake pads on your vehicle but without the caliper working as it should it will wear down the brake pads and rotors quickly

Brake lights don't work

check all electrical fuses first. the brake switch that is mounted on top of brake pedal arm underdash, may be bad or out of adjustment. this switch sends power to rear stop lights when putting on the brake. if bad there will be no power going to back lights. after fixing switch check the power to stop lights. if still no power check wires and the bulbs.

My break pedal I have to pump twice to stop, I checked the pad and shoes, they are in good condition. what I don't know is how to set the E break?.

When you say "E" I am guessing you mean an emergency brake. The parking brake can be used for that reason but not designed to do this but only in an emergency. below I gave you the instructions on how your parking brake works. I hope this helps and is what you're looking for and by the way it sounds as if you need to replace your master cylinder. Good luck.

Altered back wheel to tighten chain now the brake is catching what do i do?

Slacken off the rear brake adjuster. Doing that will stop the brake from rubbing.
Hope that helps.

How to stop cable disc brake pads from constantly rubbing on disc; what adjustments needed?

Depends on the braking system.

1) turn the adjuster know on the side of the brakes, this will increase/ decrease the distance the pads are from the rotor.

2) adjust the cable adjuster at the brake lever, if it is screwed out (away from) the lever, then turn it back toward the lever to provide a little slack in the cable tension.

3) loosen the cable by loosening the attachment bolt at the brake, letting some of the tension out of the cable, then retightening.

If none of these work, then you will need to take into your local bike shop to see what is wrong.

How to adjust the emergency brakes?

Slacken off the cable at the e brake handle , check the cable underneath for any adjusters if there are slacken them off also , Next look for little rubber plugs in the backing plates of the rear brakes remove and using a screwdriver or brake adjusting tool wind the adjusters until the wheel is rubbing on the brake shoes get the 2 rear brakes rubbing the same the adjust the e brake at the handle until it clicks 3 or 4 times when you pull it up and that should be about right.
Hope this helps

Right rear wheel has rubbing and grinding noises, as on cast iron

My advise is to adjust the rear brakes. The drum should not move in a side to side fashion. adjusting the brakes will also more than likely take care of that anti lock brake light also. adjust the brakes up to where the rear wheel will spin but you should be able to hear the brake show dragging slightly on the drum.
