Weld on the side gears? What are you talking about? You're not going to HAVE a differential anymore, you'll have a permanently locked rear end.

Why don't you just go to a junkyard and find another differential?

Also, if you've torn up those so much, better take your axle completely apart and clean it out and replace all the bearings or you'll be taking it apart soon enough anyway...and probably not when you're expecting it.

Okay, it's just that there's a lot of metal in there right now and you should also purchase new bearings and seals. I'm particularly concerned about the pinion bearing.

It's your axle, but when you "chew" up a lot of metal in there it's a good idea to replace the bearings.

Might as well try to use the existing bearing a bit longer I guess, then do all the cleaning and replacement when you fit the new diff. Blessings to you and I hope it holds out until you get the parts.
