An update on this: Got everything copied over... somehow...? Didn't need to do any deep recovery, the data I actually needed wasn't in the corrupted blocks.
New system's all set up, just need to install a few more programs and I'm all set!
The real road block turned out to be Adobe's license servers for CS3 shutting down at some point in the last 4 years 🙃
