how different from 2009 would changing rear brake drums for a 2007 ford escape xls 2.3L be?

My Ford Escape 2012 is only 42k miles. It's starting to squeal when coming to a stop. What front break pads might you recommend? I want something with good stopping power. Also, can I skimp and get the rotors turned, or should I just replace them? And finally, when do I need to replace the rear breaks (drums)? As you can tell, I'm completely clueless as this is my first car. Thanks in advance to anyone who might give me a hand here.

I had a bad fitment with Motorcraft BRF-936B on my 2009 Hybrid. I decided to replace my rear brakes due to a warped rotor that was grabbing and figured I'd just replace everything - shoes and drums. I ordered the drums and BRF-936B as outlined in this video but after replacing the shoes NEITHER of my drums would fit. My old, warn drums or my new ones. So I had my old drums turned (should have just done this in the first place) - and then they barely fit over the shoes with the self adjusters completely retracted. I don't understand... the BRF-936B are the only part listed for this vehicle but they look and fit completely different from the originals. The originals are barely worn due to this being a hybrid and being on the rear... I'm disappointed in Ford replacement parts. This is the first time I've ever had a fitment issue with rear brakes... also the first time I've bought factory parts for the job. I'll think twice next time. The self adjuster design is confusing too - they don't come close to contacting the adjusting wheel unless they are partially unscrewed. I'll recheck this job later to see if they are working at all.
