They have these "repair" oil pan plugs you can use, I ran one for a long time. It's kinda like a wing anchor, push it in and it stays in, you just loosen it or tighten it to drain the oil and seal it up.

Dorman or sometimes the HELP! aisle in PoopBoys has a slightly oversize self tapping repair bolt, but I'd just change the pan as you won't know when you've lost the plug until the oil pressure guage reads ZERO...

Actually, not a bad idea if you are a decent welder, a beginner will just make more drain holes....I have no idea how good of a welder muddslinger is so I hope no offense taken, none meant...
