Take it one step at a time and learn the proper ways as seen in the videos. For me, my left side is still not that strong so when i get to go to public skates, i do lines stopping on my weak side. As with just about everything in hockey, practice makes perfect.
I actually think that if you can "one foot" hockey stop, you're have pretty solid balance and power...

I can do it, especially if I intent on launching off that foot, lets say from hard forechecking before hitting the board so I can change directions or transition

I don't think I've seen anyone else at a public skate even try to stop with just one blade on the ice...
