I would like to purchase a soldering gun/kit and solder. Please advise which solder would be best to use for re-cabling headphones.

Solder #1

or

Solder #2

or

something else?

I've listed the two options above as my best guesses, which are 63/37 solder.

Also, would a cheap 30 watt soldering wand/gun work well for this, or would I need something else?

Any additional advice is appreciated.

Thanks

I second the Kester recommendation. I've used it for years and have been happy with it.

As for an iron, maybe think about buying a decent one. You might want to build an amp sooner or later. Or maybe several amps.
