This is what I see after 1...Ke6

1...Ke6 2. f8=N+ gives White a standard N vs R draw. In your line, the final position is drawn.

1...Ke6 2.Kf8 and a drawish game

No; after Kf8 black will take the pawn.

See the post above. The position is a draw.

White to play and force Black to mate White (a forced self-mate),

I think the best move is 1. Bc6! Bxc6+ (forced since Black has no other legal move) 2. Rg2 Bxg2#.

Mate in 31 (you can use hints for last 2 moves)

If the position is legal (as required in a composition), there is a much faster mate.
