You can scrub the rock off using a dish scrubber or something of that type, tooth brush is a bit small. No need to use SW as its just been sitting out and its dead anyways.
Rinse out the sand before puttin in the tank. Rinse out the tnak with vineagar and water, rinse well after you give it a lil scrubbing.
Fill tank half way with salt water that has been mixed up at least 24hrs prior. Put sand in. Then you can Aquascape, making sure you push the rock to the bottom of the tank, before setting another piece on top of it.
All the other things you have listed will work for ya. On thing to keep in mind though, that tank will go through a normal 4-6 weeks cycle, as the bacteria is no longer alive on any of the things you have.
You;ll still need tesing equipment.
