The refrigerant used since ~ 10 years is no more dangerous than the one previously used and it is even doubtful that the newer stuff is any better for the ozone layer.
The original coolant could be inhaled without injury as long as one didnt suffocate from a lack of oxygen.
The repair may not be cheap since it will entail the removal and replacement of the damaged coil.
This will require some specialized welding to install.
Using a normal table-top or floor-standing fan to circulate ambient air through the refrigerator with the door(s) open is a safe and fast method for defrosting units that do not automatically defrost.
Just make sure you have some absorbant material in the bottom to avoid water running out of the unit.
Poking the coils with sharp objects can result in the problem you now have or fracture hidden joints that will allow the gas to escape.

The only repair for this is to replace the evaporator, this requires serious technical skill in
Usually this type of repair costs more than you will want to spend, it is not
covered by any warranty I know of.
Most techs will not want to attempt a repair of this nature due to the near impossibility
of getting all the moisture out of the system, and the very real likelihood of a service call back.
In future Only use hot water to assist in defrosting, or let defrost naturally before putting back into service. Never use any device to pry or poke at the ice.

The aluminum is the collection tray that the water drains down and goes down the tube to pan under fridge.
With all the ice you are talking about it will be hard to see. You might need to get a towel and mop up excess water as you go.
Get a shop vac if you have one and put the hose in the end that blows instead of vacuum's the warm air will aid in defrosting the ice out of coils. Other wise use a hair dryer. The drain is in center right below the coils. When you get to where you are closer to the as you say aluminum you will notice a small diameter hole say just smaller then a penny in size. Now get some table salt and put approx. 2 tea spoons on the top of hole. this will melt the ice much faster and clear out the drain tube in minutes. Then just clear out with some water and you can monitor the pan under the fridge to see how much water comes out. Hope this helps ken
