the vibration you feel at full lock brakes is the ABS pump working - and is normal. If your car is not stopping in time then your tyres are shot or literally so brand new they have the mold release compound still stuck on them.
The brake fluid is a wear item like engine oil, its supposed to be changed out every year. Make sure all air is purged out to ensure proper brakes. The rubber pipes are a 10 year item, replace before disaster, they also act as stupid valves if they collapse internally causing all sorts of strange issues.
Tone wheels are the "daant aka teeth" that the abs sensors read.
