Do we have to remove all the springs and membranes or can we screw it from the outside

If you just add screws to broken rivet shaft locations, that is a "screw mod" which is an order of magnitude easier.

Many people prefer this, including pseudo-professional refurbishers, but personally I want to take it completely apart so that I can clean all the parts including the membrane sandwich layers.

Is there a way to screw mod it without taking apart the barrel plate by just drilling the back and screwing it.

That is exactly what it is. The term should probably be "screw repair" because you are not modifying anything.

I meant to say if we could half screw mod it
