You will not find instructions for that telescope. However Meade maintains a web site for all of their telescopes. Look under REFRACTOR for one that is similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.

SOURCE: Hi, the plastic bit snapped
You can certainly buy both eyepiece(s) and a diagonal, but you may find the price rather high compared with the value of the telescope. You probably don't actually need the diagonal- if you remove the broken one you should find that it is possible to insert an eyepiece directly in the hole it comes out of. The diagonal is useful for two things, it partially erects the image (astronomical telescopes usually display the image inverted), and it provides a more convenient viewing angle.
I am assuming the the eyepiece size is 1.25 inch outside diameter- the standard for small telescopes. Some earlier scopes might require an eyepiece just under an inch in diameter. These will be much harder to find now.
There is a useful website about small scopes on THIS LINK

Diagonal come in 3 sizes .965 inch, 1.25 inch, and 2 inch. Measure the hole in the focuser and buy the correct size. Here are two retailers:
