There is cleaning spray specifically for cleaning maf sensors, or you can use electrical contact cleaner.

Dude, don't buy anything from NZ unless it's cheap, people here are rip off artists, get onto eBay and grab one, theres always a couple around. Ranging from 100-180+ I recently picked up one for 140, came with IAT sensor, air box lid and intake tube. so that was sweet, but yeah, you usually just see the maf body by it self, or with elecs in it for $160.

Is it possible to tune without the MAF, are there MAFLESS tune options?

The Ford MAF seems to be more reliable than many GM type MAFs of about the same age

MAFless tuning is not possible and you're right the Hitachi MAF that Ford uses is very reliable and fast compared to GM frequency output MAF's. There are so many sizes available that getting rid of it is a non-issue, just size it to suit your engine.
