i presume the welds you are seeing will be spot welds, i have replaced a couple of wings before and just used pop rivets.

yes you can split the welds using a cold chisel, not too difficult providing you can get at them. there will be very little damage left where the spot weld was so yes the panel should fit without too many issues.
