Question Questions.. Replacing oil pan on 2005 C230 kompressor..

This oil change place screwed up my parents 2005 C230 Kompressor by over tightening the oil drain plug and split the block just below the bolt.. We haven't confronted them about it yet since we spotted the oil spill today and the changed it a few days ago... It split just below the bolt, and thats the only way for that split to happen would be overtightening it
Is it easy or hard to change out the oil pan on this car?? I see a lot of suspension cross-members below the pan and feel that these will become a huge pain in the arse.. I am very good with working with cars so I am considering taking a shot at it..
Is it possible to weld the split and it hold??
Has anyone done this job before and have input??
Where can I locate a used one?? Junk yards??

Thanks for your help!
