With some basic metal shaping you could cut the rust out and weld a new bit in.
OR cut a good section from a scrap car and weld that in.

Nope it wont twist as Ive done this on a car before. Depending on how far along you need to cut its quite easy. The only difficult bit is under neath the light luster as you have to cut inside the boot and the light panel is double skinned.

Oh I wouldn't try and remove the whole panel, just cut the section under the bootlid between the lights, only replace a few inches worth. Unless your entire panel is rotten of course.
