Won't the hdd start at all?
Professional recovery will costs A LOT of bucks., don't know how important his work is so that's worth the money.
Years ago, I read that it is possible to buy the same model of hdd and changing the hdd platters.

I don't know where you heard that, but that would be virtually impossible to do successfully inside of your home.
