Can a former president administer the oath of enlistment?

No. It has to be someone with authority. Past presidents have no authority. You can put on a show and have them do it and then behind a curtain have someone with authority to do it, but the ex president can not do it with authority.

The President doesn't administer the oath at all.

Probably not as they are not at that time an officer of the United States.
