A square taper crank set with triple chain rings is a straight forward search item in google, or the local bike shop. If you are aiming for a pure drop in replacement, make sure you get the same tooth count on the chain rings, and the crank arms are the same length. You mentioned the BB is only threaded on one end.

For ride and flat resistance I would definitely take a ...

This makes it so that you also cant use the brake release for the V-brakes unless you file the ...

Hub Width On road, mountain, and hybrid, the front hubs are 100mm in width. On road bicycles the rear is typically 130mm, where on a MTB it is typically 135mm. Measure this from your old hub, and DON'T stretch/force a different hub width. Wheel (Rim) Diameter The most typical road rim is a 700c which will mean the bead seat diameter of the rim is 622mm, ...
