The brake shoes need adjusting. Disengage the parking brake.
Before fitting new shoes you should slack off the parking brake cable completely. Locate the adjuster(just follow the parking brake cable. Undo the locknut and slack off the cable.
Remove the rear wheels and drums again. You will find a screw-in type adjuster between the shoes. Turn the adjuster to increase the distance between the shoes. The left and right wheel's adjusters turn in opposite directions to achieve the same result. Fit the drum to see if it slides over the pads easily. Do so until you start having diffyculty sliding the drum over the shoes. Fit the drum and rotate it. You should not hear any scraping or have any resistance on the drum when it is rotated. Refit the wheels. Test the parking brake. If it is still too slack adjust the cable under the car until you when you engage the parking brake it engages fully after 3-5 clicks.

No, no lock of any kind in the brake system. Most likely the fault is in the transmission. Simple tests to confirm that: secure the back wheels and lift the front ones,
1 - put the contact without starting the engine, rotate one wheel, then apply the brake - if the brakes work normally the wheel should turn easily the moment you release the brakes.
2 - put the lever in Neutral and ask a friend to help you in rotating both wheels at the same time - if you can't do that then the transmission is locked: either the Parking paw is still locking the output shaft or some clutches have failed. To confirm this is the cause
3 - put the lever back in park, press the breaks and start the motor then shift into Drive and release the brakes (don't touch the accelerator pedal): the wheels should normally start spinning; to confirm that the brakes have been released and it's not their fault just go out of the truck and (gently and carefully, spin one wheel - it the transmission is locked the other wheel will spin in the opposite direction.
