WJ balljoints
JKS hub spacers
WJ rotors,pads,calipers
WJ knuckles

That should be it right? and than just need to redrill rotors to 5x4.5. no other spacers or anything is needed correct?

Yes that is all. Steering will need to be addressed. And eventually the trackbar/draglink angles

Don't forget 2000+ hub bearings if you don't want to run caliper spacers.

If you use the hub spacers, and the 2007 Explorer Sport Trac rotors you don't have to drill them or space the caliper right?

You have to enlarge the inner part of the rotor to fit over the hub if you run the sport trac rotors and you need caliper spacers. No matter which hub you use you need to run the hub spacer to make the ujoint line up properly.
