I am looking for information on best practices for taking an illustrator file into Adobe Animate, adding simple animation/interactivity, and publishing .html and .js files that have the fastest possible load times on our Wordpress site.

There's no such thing as "optmizing for Wordpress". Optimizing is optimizing, no matter what the final destination is.
