Use one of these to remove the paint. Sandpaper on a block of wood to clean the frog of paint. Bend the tab up.

Cleaned frog. Plane can be tuned up nicely..

On mine, I replaced the flimsy plastic depth aduster with a metal one..

One that I had as a spare…

All good advice. You need to remove the paint that is on the mating surfaces. I’d try putting paint stripper on with a brush or something so it is only on the mating surfaces and doesn’t remove paint elsewhere.

Abt. the file question…..Get a single cut “mill bastard”. No, I’m not being crude. That’s the real name for the file.
I use a 6” and 8” most often, but I have others.
Try to find new old stock if at all possible. Nicholson, Simmonds, Black Diamond are some of the good ones. USA made if ya can.
Do you have an OLD hardware store nearby?
