I'm convinced the translation of the tang will appear shortly. We have members who are able to give a translation.
The sword is as far as I can judge from the pictures in an awful condition.
To adapt a new habaki and I suppose you mean the other fitings above it as well shouldn't be so difficult. There is enough for sale on ebay. Point is, will it fit this sword? So measurements of the merchandise is necessary. You could look for new replacements, but I strongly advise you to go for original replacements.
