We just did squat singles last week. We want you to remember the concentration and effort you put into each one of those single reps and apply it to each rep in each set today. You are not doing 3 sets of 5. You are doing 3 sets of 5 singles. Each rep the same, each with your full effort and concentration. For part 2 it is difficult to give blanket advice on how to go about scaling. For most, the jerk will be the limiting factor. If it is a weight you can jerk, you can probably power clean it 5 times. We have a few people in the gym that are exceptions to the this, but they are usually the more advanced athletes. Think of what would be a challenging but very achievable jerk and then do a reality check of that against a 5 rep power clean and 3 rep front squat.
