My rear brake bolt always seemed to get loose easily, now its stripped. If the bolt was longer it could grab some threads but being that weird proprietary bolt, i dont think finding a longer one is an option. Should i try to jb weld it in? I dont see what else to do

I don't think JB weld is going to hold  for long. You will need to either Heli-coil it or get a Timesert steel insert. Timeserts are best, but Helicoil kits (or something like it) are generally more readily available.

I thpught about deepening the hole in the lever itself because the threads are good deeper in my frame, or getting an aftermarket one that isnt as deep

Use a Helicoil or a Time-sert re-threader insert.
