Sorry, but no.

You cannot weld the "alclad metal".

You can however, cover the old hole with something decorative.

Replace the entire panel would be the only way. Seems I remember member Aerowood do a butt seam with flush rivets on something. Bear in mind Aerowood is an expert I would not attempt much of what he can do...
