If your good with metal, you can probably do that, but it never look perfect. I would go to a junk yard and try to find another new looking pan (I'm not sure they would let you pull the carpet on all their cars) or you can go to partrequest.com and see if they can find a good one.

The key to body panel replacement is rust cannot touch the new parts. If it does, the hole will be back in five years, only worse. When you cut the old pan out, cut at least an inch into good metal to give the replacement part a better chance. Even get under the car and make sure that the new piece will not touch any rust. If you cannot get it to that point, then you should seek more substantial advise from a restoration shop.
