Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Need to drill a hole for the mounting screw. What's the best way to get the correct alignment?

Yes but clearly not in the correct alignment. New to me Smith Corona stock. I don't know how it ever had the lug attached

Mine appears to be part of the front band, maybe tig welded or perhaps buy another front band with bay lug? As long as the bayonet blade isn't going to interfere with the bullets flight I wouldn't worry about alignment?
