Hi. I've been following this thread, but I don't have a sense of how much experience you have doing this type of repair work. Is welding easy, diy? For an experience welder it is, but for the rest of us, maybe not so much. I picked up a nice lincoln mig welder a couple of years ago, and I can get two pieces of metal to stick together, but it probably wont be that pretty, though hopefully strong enough. And then there is the cost of the machine and the supplies and the protective gear so you don't get burned. So I would say no, probably not.

No, not polishing. Remove the loose surface rust with either a wire brush or some other method, prime and paint. Basic metal preservation
