You're better off finding a new door, any solution you can come up with will only be for the short-term, and paying a body shop to fix it and paint (they're going to want to blend) is just not worth it when you can get a door cheaper.

You need to relax with the "Don't tell me what I can't do" attitude though, it would be grossly inefficient for you to take the time to acquire the necessary experience and skill-set to be able to fix it professionally, sure you can do it, but it wouldn't make sense. Sometimes you just have to accept the fact that it makes more sense to have it fixed, if you can't afford it then your priorities are probably all wrong becuase all your money went/is going to the car.

you should be fine just bondoing over i think? Isn't that what body shops do when they drill holes and use a slide hammer to pull out a panel?
