If you like tackling stuff yourself you can find tire repair kits in your local auto parts store and you could fix it. Hard part is finding the leak. The amount of time it takes to lose pressure is a good indication of how large a leak it is. You can hold it under water completely if you have a big enough vat for that, or, you can make up a soapy-water solution and spray it on your tire systematically looking for bubbles to form. After you find it(them), just follow the directions on the repair kit.

You could look on e-bay for a wheel, there are probably plenty. Probably a lot of different prices too but most likely will be anywhere from $20-50. Shaking when the brakes are applied is a good indication that it is the brakes. You could have a rotor that is warped or a pad that's wore out too much. If you have little experiance with brake work then I suggest you have someone look at it for you.
