So before I put these back in, what is a good way to really clean and flush these as good as possible?

air is a popular choice. Id only blow air through the line though, take off the brass block so nothing gets blown into it.

Are you going to add the hill holder system while you are doing it?

Alcohol is the only approved brake system cleaner. "Brake clean" is a degreaser for drums and rotors, and not meant to be inside the braking system.
