Well to start what your trying to slide over the shoes is the drum. The shoes are mounted around the bearing. If you can't slide the drum over the shoes then the shoes are over adjusted. Adjust the shoes until the drum can slide over the shoes with ease. If the hub bearing is a bolt on assembly then it should mount back on the same way it came off, if it was removed for the brake job.
