You can get rebuild kits from just about any lawn mower/small engine repair shop around. However unless your trimmer has had harsh treatment it most likely only needs a good cleaning. They are pretty simply to disassemble.
Remove the carb from the motor and get a clean spot on a bench or work table. You will need some solvent to soak it in, lacquer thinner works great because it will take care of any gas that may have turned to varnish during storage.
Remove the bottom float bowl attached by the four screws. Inside you will see the float. It is held in place by a pin that can be pushed out. Be careful not to lose the small wire clip that holds the valve pin to the float. After you have the float and valve out let everything soak over night. Using a small screwdriver (cheap jewelers drivers work best) wrap a piece of scottch pad or fine steel wool around the end and twist it into th port where the valve was. If you have a compressor blow it out the other ports and holes or a can of brake clean if no compressor and reassemble. It's also a good idea to clean out the fuel tank.
This will take care of 80% of problems with small engines. Any other trouble is most likely an issue it being worn out.
Hope this helps.

Older model Weedwacker Trimmer/Edger with flip switch on shaft that converts trimmer to edger. No serial/model number/manual. Need to order the metal guide (curved, v-shaped) that fit under shield. ...

You will probably have to find someone who has the same model or a different model but has the part that looks the same and get there model numbers. You may just need to take a good look at yours and go to Sears to see if theirs are identical. Then get the model number information and order your parts. You can order by searching Craftsman parts and going to the Sears website and entering the model number and finding the part on the illustrated parts diagram and then look to the list at the right of the screen and find that number to get your part number to order. You will be able to order or if you look at the top of the page (i think) you can call order if you prefer.

Your gas cap is probably clogged with dirt. The next time you run the trimmer and it begins to stall out, loosen the gas cap, it should start to run good again. Gas cap must be able to breathe in order for gas to flow properly.
