Any tips for replacing spokes and re-truing a rear wheel

I recently picked up a 99 400WRF and this is about all I can find wrong with the bike. It is serious need of attention. My spoke kit is due in possibly tomorrow. There are several spokes missing, while others are broken off and dangling. The bike has a very noticeable wobble on pavement and I have been afraid to ride it much since I got it for this reason. Have any of you guys had to do any repairs to your rims? Many say they can be re-trued to nearly perfectly straight. I honestly dread doing it, but it has to be done. I certainly cannot afford a new or even used rear wheel. Pointers are much appreciated.
