Welcome to the forum! You'll find it isn't hard to lock up the rear brake, which isn't a desirable thing to do, with just toe pressure. As Duckster pointed out, there would be less precision with rear wheel braking if the heel is used, so I wouldn't recommend it.
Taking a basic rider course is the best way to learn proper riding techniques, and will keep you safer on the road. And with all the grey heads in your riding area, staying safe can be a challenge! And least my comment draw the ire of grey heads, I am one!
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
