Brake cleaner is your friend, spray the hell out of the rear calipers and drum brake.
Take the rear wheel off & you will find a rubber plug on the face of the brake rotor where the wheel mounts, it will have a single slot in it. Be careful to not push the plug into the brake rotor or you will have to remove the rotor to get it back out, but you can pry it out & then spray the hell out of the parking brake system inside the rotor which should help if its still sticking. Sounds like the clutch install was fine, and if you could do that then servicing the rear brakes will be a breeze.

Rear brakes are a hybrid of sorts, stopping is handled by the calipes which are hydraulic. The parking brake is cable driven & is basically a tiny drum brake located inside the rear brake rotor. Brake system is easy to tear down & inspect/clean/replace, just leave the hydraulic lines alone unless you are comfortable bleeding them. Impact screwdriver & a BFH will make rotor removal a piece of cake.
