The footwork issue can be fixed. It is important to practice the short and long balls often as this is what occurs often in a match situation.
Firstly practice one short push and then a forehand topspin. Concentrate on moving just your right foot in and out. Once you feel comfortable doing this you can get your training partner to either push short or long and you need to move the right foot in and out quickly depending on the ball.
Jump in and out pushing off your left leg and moving your right foot excessively at first. Make sure the right foot gets all the way back each time. It needs to be behind the line of the left foot.
PLaying a forehand with your right foot forward will feel really uncoordinated because your body can't move naturally.
