You can get a thread repair kit. Call an auto supply store. You can get a new oil pan gasket/sealant also.

How can I replace the oil pan?

You're going to have to use a tap to rethread the hole.
Personally, I'd find the next size plug, then drill and tap the new hole.
Afterwards, elevate on side of the car so any fluids inside run out and use brake cleaner to make sure you have all the metal shavings out. You could also use a small magnet.

2001 ford windstar oil leak from oil plug

There could be several causes for your leak:
  • Oil plug is loose
  • Oil plug is stripped and can't be tightened
There are some products that will substitute for a bad oil plug. Most repair shops will try to sell you a new oil pan. Sometimes a small gasket around the oil plug will stop the leak as well.

Will be changing engine oil and want to make sure i do it correctly

first off make sure u have some old rags or a roll of blue shop towels works best. u need to be sure u have enough oil probly five or six quarts. make sure u got ur filter. u may need a filter wrench, not alway but they can stick tight. also a drain pan and a wrench for the oil plug.
first take the key and put it in ur pocket, thats good to do no matter what ur working on because that way no one will start it if your not around or worse under it. ok warm up the engine. carfull not to burn your self but the hotter the better when draining oil. hot oil drains better hot, but hurts on but that how we do it in every shop. ok now take ur drain pan and plug wrench. also a rag. probly fourteen or fifteen mm crawl under the front and look for the plug in the bottom of the oil pan, the big pan right at the bottom of the engine lossen the plug.remember righty tighty, lefty loosy now put the pan under and unscrew the plug all the way and make sure ur oil is going in the pan. now u should still be holding the plug, thats where the rag is needed because its still hot and ur hand will start to burn after a few seconds. ok now if u can see the filter from down there go ahead and take it off. if not go up to the top and do it there. but put the pan under it before you do. ok now u have the filter and oil out give it ten or so to drip. clean the plug good and put it back in. tighten it down right away. never leave a plug not tight. its not a i will get it in a minute kinda thing. never put in an oil plug and not tighten it down. i have seen it happen before. not good. ok now with the new oil filter u need to take some new oil ,just a few drops will do, and coat the ruber ring. then carfully. carfully. carfully put it back in place and screw it tight. carfully i stress. if u miss pull it back out and clean the dirt off. its just like spark plugs. if u miss clean the dirt. u dont want that in ur engine. now tighten by hand and give it a little more with the wrench just to be sure it wont work its way loose. ok last step. new oil. if u have a owners manual it should say how much to use. once u put that much in u still need to check the dip stick because its not a garentee that how much u need. ok oil level says full , plug is tight filter is tight. fire it up and watch ur oil gauge. it should come up within a few seconds. ten seconds running dry and u will burn ur bearings so whatch it. if no oil pressure shut it off in real cold weather it can take up to twenty seconds to prim, at most. ok u got good oil pressure let it run about a minute. shut it off, wait about a minute and check the dipstick again. it it was right at full before u started it it may be a little low because of the filter ,so add a little if needed. thats it ur done. but its also a good time to check or replace ur air filter to. but dont let any dirt get in there ether.

Oil leaking from oil pan

check the drain plug to be sure it is tight enough. if not that it is probably coming from the oil pan gasket.
