They normally should be cleaned and oiled (electric motor oil/3 in 1) every season. Sometimes you have to dismount them and find the oil holes in the case. Sometimes they can be oiled, sometimes they can't. If not, check online or your dealer for a replacement.

The Combustion blower or the room air (convection) blower? Either or, they should be oiled every season.

I use this, even though rated for the larger motors, seems to work well for the blower motors.
My local hardware store around $3.

Not sure, can you post a pic? I don't know any rubber parts in any of the blowers I have taken apart. Mostly metal housing with a metal squirrel cage blower..or is it the rubber mount for the stator or bearing of the motor? Not sure if that can be replaced separately or not?

You can check ebay or http://www.electricmotorwarehouse.com they may have something....
