It sounds like your brake system needs to have the air bled out of the hydraulic system. If the fluid leaked out, then air got into the system. Air in the hydraulic system will usually make the brakes feel 'spongey' and somewhat ineffective. If the air is just in one part of the hydraulic system, it can make all of the braking power go to the opposite side. (You may have air in the left side, but have the ENTIRE system bled.)

Is brake calipers necessary for brake drums?

There are no calipers used with brake drums. Brake drums work with curved brake pads pressing against the inside circular surface of the drum when the brakes are applied. These pads are held in place and pushed by a spring and lever assembly that is mounted to a steel plate attached to the wheel or axle of the car. This plate does not move. Calipers are used with disc brakes to hold the brake pads on both sides of the disc brake and to apply them against the disc when the brakes are applied.
