This is likely your convergence IC solder connections. Does it look bowed and rainbow colored? The red, green, and blue will be mis-aligned causing a shadow effect. If you can bump it then the ICs (chips) are still ok, it just needs resoldering.

    my company charges $300-400 for the full repair (replacing ICs, full realignment plus cleaning)

    if you can find a company that will resolder for you, it could cost $100-200 maybe. if you are a handy person with soldering skills, you could repair yourself. i can instruct if needed, but convergence IC soldering requires decent soldering skills.

Why is picture 1/3 down from top and 3" in on right side is a little darker?

Did you move or bump the TV? That can cause misalignment. Did anyone fool with the setup? Get the manual and run through that again. Did you change input source (IE new DVD player, etc)? There is a setup (usually in menu) for slight adjustments to picture in most TVs, like on computer screens adjustments if you ever have done that. RTFM

A 2 inch wide blue line just came up on the right side on our screen. It goes from top to bottom. The model number is mu42pm12x. The weird thing is that it happened right after the remote (which is...

hmmm...when the remote was bumped, as in stepped on, perhaps? or dropped? the tv itself would be unlikely to be affected in the manner in which you mention, due to this.

unplug it and let it set for 20 min, then report back here, please..

Top half of the screen is normal colour and the bottom half yellow greenish

Depending on the brand, it's likely that the color guns are out of alignment, or some of them are faulty. If bumping the TV has any affect on the picture, this is your problem. If the TV is a newer TV, this should be covered under warranty. If it is past warranty, the parts are available from the manufacturer. It's not "easy" to replace these parts, but it is doable. Good luck to you!

Yes, it could. There is a light pipe in the light path that could now be broken from the bumping or it could just be out of line from the bumping. Another problem could be the mirrors in the projection path could just need adjusted by the 3 screws that are beside the mirrors. This may also happen when bumped.
