You should be able to find Dot4 brake fluid at any major auto store or Walmart, etc. I'd pick up a name brand fluid, not the store brand.

I haven't had to replace the brakes on my wing, but from other bikes I've had I'd recommend using OEM pads. I put EBC RR pads on my Nomad and while they worked fine it sounded like a hoard of locusts every time I stopped. Before that I'd never had a problem with EBC pads.

I've personally found the OEM pads last at least twice as long as EBCs. Can't say if one stops the Wing better than the other but the OEMs do last and last. DOT 4 fluid you can pick up anywhere.
