If the rest of that line says things like "-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE
KEY-----" then that's a private key and is not what you need to put into
authorized_keys. There should be a corresponding key file with a ".pub"
extension which is what you need to use.

If there's not then you can extract the public components from the
private key like so:

$ ssh-keygen -y -f id_rsa >id_rsa.pub

(or simply generate a new set if you haven't deployed this key anywhere).

I'm sorry but I can't make out your meaning here.

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
