The brown stuff is called varnish, that's what happens when gas is left in the carbs for years. There are some great products on the market to clean carbs, some come in a one gallon can and you just drop the unit in to soak after removing the jets and screws.

Lots of places online sell rebuild kits for under $20 after you identify what carb you have. I have had great service from for stuff like this.

No advice on the stripped screw without seeing it, got a picture?

will paint thinner take the varnish off?
I don't know for sure, but it probably will. Once you identify the carb, Google search it-there are 100's of u-tube videos only that show how to do it.
