Humm I think you should remove the big rubber duct to the throttle body, clean the inside with carb cleaner and a tooth brush. Open the throttle wide so you can clean the top and bottom of the flap and the intake area.
The car will run a little rough for a minute or so but smooth out. There is no such thing as "lubing" the throttle cable. There is a black builkup of fuel additives in the throttle body.
I would change the plugs, fuel filter, oil and air filters. Replace the bad filler neck and get on with it. At this stage I don't think a flush is necessary. A lot of times it a rip off.
Remember, back to basics.
