I got stuck on the inner lock nut, it comes half way off the thred shaft, but then gets stuck, I can move it back to tighten it but only about 1/2 way forward, then I wont move, I stripped the 4 hole nut a little because it seems the socket does not go all the way to the back of the nut.

The bearings are bad and the lock-nut thread are most probably damaged. Get someone to depress the brakes while you remove the lock nut.

Ok I got the inner spindle nut off finally, but the treds are stripped on the spindle its self NOT the locking nut, should I re-thread the spindle with a tap and die or get a new one?

If the threads are stipped, it is best to get a new spindle. Rethreading might not be strong enough to hold the nut and bearings and can result in the bearing failing again.
