Absolutely,
If he has experience changing a Chev one piece in the car.
If the rear cover is not leaking the pan can stay.
Carefully drilled , a couple small sheet metal screws will let you pop it out.
Not carefully and you mark the crank = bad day .

...hum, FWIW I never found it a problem just using the 3 recess slots for a screwdriver to pry the old one out. I use the Kent More install tool to put them in...but you can just tap "lightly" around edge to start then use a block of wood covering RMS and a BFH to set it home

I finally found my retired trans guy. He recommeded a guy who he had worked with in the past. Guy seems willing and able. Got good vibes from him.
When I told him about the hole in the bell housing, he said he probably had a core, or could get one. When I asked about the rear main seal, he didn't flinch. Just said, as long as its a one piece.
Cars at his shop now. So hopefully We're on the road to recovery
