Rolls eyes, I love people who couldn't be bothered to actually work with a horse, just run them into the ground to get the job done. Good for you for not listening.
For the feet I would start with a nice soft, long lead rope. Gently toss the rope all over his body working your way down towards the legs. Keep tossing and wrapping it around the legs until he stands still. Leave him to chew on that for the day. Next day do the above again to make sure he's still good with the friendly rope. Next take your lead rope and try to lift his leg up, not much just a tiny bit at a time. Usually the fronts will come first then the hinds. If he's making a fuss try to disengage the hind end and start again. They really don't want to give up the hind end, but once you have control over it you have some control over the horse.
You can also start up at the shoulder and rub up and down the leg for several minutes then as your rubbing stop at the bottom and give a squeeze to see if he will volunteer the hoof. Same goes for the back, start up at the hip and slowly start rubbing, going lower and lower. BECAREFUL where you stand, make sure your hip is right up against his, that way if he cow kicks it doesn't have any force.
You can google for many more techniques.
As for the stall problems, it sounds to me as if he's not getting enough turn out and has too much energy. How much turn out does he get? What his feed program? Is he going to be gelded soon?
