Sorry I can’t really help you.
IMHO, time for a new truck.
By the time you take your truck apart, reconstruct the side of the vehicle and reassemble, the time and material involved is going to be a lot more than you realize.
Maybe dad can help with a new truck...

How the rest of the truck? Is there a lot of rust? Any body damage?

If the door support is rotten, might be better off getting another truck, especially if the rust is that bad that it's causing major body pars to fail and fall off.

Might be cheaper to just buy a cab from a junkyard truck. Certainly not less work. Cheaper maybe...
