Using inner tube on tubeless tire is not a good idea. Neither is using just any tube on a radial tire (radial tubes are different than bias tubes.

Tube in tubeless tire can cause pressure issues as air can get trapped between tube and tire only to leak out slowly over days and weeks of use which means you need to monitor pressure constantly till the pressure stabilizes.

Cleaning and paint may be a good solution unless the rust is actually flaking steel which I think is seen in your pictures.
Surface rust should not be an issue.

POR15 and powder coat can work but you may cause other problems in the bead seat area as those thick coatings can actually cause bead seating problems. I did work on this issue when a car company decided to re-paint a few hundred wheels to change from silver to black. The 2nd coat was thick and when added to the original coat resulted in a number of wheels being too large for proper bead seating.

Personally after removing rust I would inspect the wheel for pits which indicates that material has been lost. If no significant steel has flaked off then clean all oil, and tire lube off. Thin coat of spray Rustolium primer and Rustolium spray silver should works well.
