Regarding the lock and hasp on your door, I assume the door locking mechanism no longer operates. These are hard to find and expensive, but they can be disassembled and fixed. You may need to work on your door hinges, too, to bring the lock back in alignment with the door frame. MichaelM has good information about putting on new door hinges.

Yes that door needs some work. I don't have the original key so I am not sure what to do about that...

A lock smith can make a new key no problem. If I recall Chris Jones had that done. That is a Bargman L300 lock which is about $300, so anything that you can do to salvage it is money well spent.

The striker plate on the door frame is adjustable, there are bolts that go through from the back. Probably have to reach in past the furnace. Some parts available on ebay.

Welcome to the uhaul club! If your lock has a code stamped in it. Just write it down and take to a locksmith and they can cut you a new one. I took my whole lock in and that's all they needed.

Lock cylinders/w keys are occasionally available for the L-300 on eBay or you might find one on line somewhere. I paid around $30 each for two that I wanted to change the keys on. For me, it was amazing how disassembly, cleaning, reassembly/tighten everything and then lubricating them at how they work like new...
