Maybe no CC because you had no FC (at first) to kill and begin the transition process to create more CC and ultimate oxidize it all? It might take a while to begin that process. Regardless, you're right about the need to SLAM (link below). No algaecides or anything other than bleach. You might also want to review Pool School - Opening Your Winterized Above Ground Pool to ensure you're not missing something significant. Once you pass the 3 SLAM criteria, then you'll need to see if you have enough metals in the water that warrant metals management. One thing at a time though. Good luck!
You don't always see CC with algae. You've got one of the three SLAM completion checks complete already! And those readings look great. SLAM away and brush till your shoulders ache. When you pass an overnight loss test and the water stays clear even after brushing, you're done. Let the FC drift down and recheck it all and see if you need anything else adjusted. I've never put algaecide, phosphate removers or any other miracle snake oil in my pool and it stays open year round. You just don't need it if you maintain adequate FC. Not sure what to tell you about the stains. If you do decide to try the Ascorbic Acid treatment, I'd suggest waiting a couple weeks until all the other chemistry is stable and you know there's no algae to spring back to life.
