Yes you can do all of the work listed with the engine still in the frame

leave the rear drive chain fitted until you have loosened the big nut that holds the drive sprocket - a standard sprocket will pass through the "inspection plate " hole into the primary - in addition to replacing the seal use sealant on the splines of the output shaft

if you are sure that all is OK with the engine then you can just rebuild as it stands - however i would recomend a cylinder head strip to check for loose guides - and for wear in the guides or valve stems - and if all OK a light lapping in the valve to seat faces

if it looks good leave it as it is - dont do unnecessary work just because its stripped down
