Mounting old handrail on new stair tread

So i've been staring at my bare staircase for awhile. I'm at a loss for what to do. I plan on re-treading and replacing the risers but have these obnoxious handrail mounts. Anyone have any ideas on how to make it nicer? I assume I need to mount it on top. I believe I need flanges? Not sure which ones though and how to install them. Here's a picture of my current setup.

Do I need an anchor plate?

I dont think this is what I need right?

Would this be sufficient? I live in LA where our building/safety codes can be strict. I think these need to be welded though, no idea how to weld plus the thought of this overlapping does not sound pretty.

If I need the above, would this replace welding? Probably wouldnt be secure enough huh?

Thanks in advance. If i'm completely wrong please feel free to correct me. I know most people have individual metal/wood balusters but can't believe how hard it has been to find an answer. Then I have the question of what to do with my landing but thats a completely different topic.

Remove rail and have new feet welded. Make sure the leading edge stops before the round over of the nosing and reinstall.
