Ok, I get your drift! Whatever you choose, remove all of the rust off both sides, A Dremel Tool would most likely be perfect due to its diminutive sized tools. But, be prepared, as you clean and remove rust you may be opening up a larger area too. For the rest of the channel, you might consider a rust converter product.
Two products come to mind JB Weld an POR Patch. I've used both in similar situations and can be machined, that is, ground smooth. You will likely have to use some type of temporary backer. I have used expired credit cards at time for this type repair.
I agree, there is way too much involved to go after it with a MIG or even lead.
