The key not working sounds like an un-programmed or broken transponder chip.

On cars before 2003/2004 it used to be possible to add extra keys yourself as long as you had your original two keys to enable a learning cycle.
Ford removed that ability after then so you would have to get someone with a VCM/IDS system to add keys via the data port.
I have two rules when it comes to a Ford, don't buy one with only one key and if you get one with both keys then source a third spare key as soon as possible for daily use.
Concerning the door lock motors, it's panel off I'm afraid.
Spraying WD40 into any gap around the lock mechanism may help but you tend to find that rust and gunk build up on the lock solenoids and actuator mechanisms.
Water gets past perished window seals and works it's way down into the door innards causing all manner of trouble.
