Try this, before removing bolts, breaking loose the factory gaskets seals, fighting with cross members and steering joints, some vehicles can never get done correctly unless a professional mechanic with proper tools and educated ways of removing a oil pan. clean it up where the crack is place some paper towel there after draining out all the oil you can, hint-- might need to sit a day with clean paper towel under it making sure its not releasing any more oil out the crack, scrub it with sand paper when its all dry and clean place some "seal all" brand glue over the crack seal all works on oil, grease, gasoline,must be absolutely clean and dry first. after two coats it dries fast then place some paper in third layer to give more stability to the patch. most of the time you will not need to replace the oil pan. if it still leaks get a good book on your vehicle in the public library they give instructions on most all repairs.removal and replacement.

Junkyard for the pan. Either that or go an import specific shop, they should be able to at least you find one.
I highly doubt that you have to drop the whole engine. You shouldn't have to completely remove the transaxle to pull the oil pan but you probably do have to pull a few bolts. By the way, if your oil pan is leaking, you can most likely just replace the oil pan gasket unless it is really warped.

Use extreme caution when the engine is operating. Do not stand in a direct line with the fan. Do not put your hands near the pulleys, belts or fan. Do not wear loose clothing.

To remove the engine oil pan either the engine has to be lifted all the way off of the motor mounts and the oil pan should just clear the flex-plate and transmission, or the front axle dropped down out of the way, or the transmission and flex-plate will have to be removed.
Usually if the engine can be lifted enough to fit a piece of 2x4 wood between the motor mounts and the frame then the oil pan will usually just have enough clearance to be removed from the rear and the oil pan should just clear the transmission and the flex-plate. Also, be sure to check that the fan blade does not damage the fan shroud when lifting the engine.
Let me know if you require any further assistance.
