you can take the oil pan off by just undoing the bolts just lift the car up then since it is just pin holes you can probly just spot weld them or maybe use a high streangth solder

SOURCE: Oil Leak

Take the car to a car wash and power wash the engine. Do this ONLY with a cold engine. And be prepared to have problems with it starting as water get's into the electrical components. Take some WD-40 with you to spray inside distributor caps, on spark wiring, etc. to get the engine running again.

Then check the engine weekly to see where the oil is coming from.

SOURCE: 2004 Chevy Cavalier Oil leak

Replacing an oil pan gasket on a car shouldn't be too difficult for you, say, about an hour or two. As long as you follow some simple guidelines, the leak should be eliminated. Improper tightening or seating of the gasket material can defeat the purpose of your work. Grab a Haynes manual, or a tech guide for your vehicle, and have it handy.

I would suggest tracking the oil leak to ensure that it's not your front seal on your crankshaft. The amount of oil that you describe sounds like a bit much for an undisturbed oil pan gasket.

SOURCE: damage undercarriage-cannot access the oil filter for changing

If the part is bolted, you should be able to unbolt it if you have access to all the bolts , if not, you can rent or buy a come-along and bend the sheet metal back far enough to gain access to the oil filter. Sounds like you have your work cut out for you either way!

What would cause all of the oil to leak out of my 1997 Pontiac Bonneville if it isn't the oil pan, or oil filter?

So there are obvious drips on the floor then?
Assuming those two which you mentioned are fine, then the other most probable and common oil leaks are from:
Rocker cover gasket(s)Front or rear crankshaft oil seals.
