That's great to see pictures! How did you get those on there? :-)
 
I'd reset the PMU and PRAM, if only just to say you did, and also do a Google search for Coconut Battery, which shows some more detailed battery info than the OS provides. You mentioned you ruled out the AC, but make sure your battery is good, preferably by trying it on the other MBP you have available.
 
I agree with Chris' assessment, i.e. the DC-in/sound board is likely damaged, and from my experience, power-related issues do go away when it is replaced. Keep in mind though, that it is the bending of the case that caused the board to be damaged, so unless you can straighten out the case somewhat once the board is out, I'd be hesitant to put a new board back in that same case. What I'm saying is, there is probably an indentation on the lower case due to the damage, and that indentation is probably pressing into the board. So if you put a new board in, the case will probably press it in the same spot, eventually leading to the same type of damage.
 
When the board is out, you can try using some plyers to straighten the case out, or at least bend it a little so that it is not in the way of the new board. If it's not possible, you may want to invest in a new (or used in good shape) lower casing. If you buy a lower casing, make sure to get one for a Core 2 Duo, because I believe the one for Core Duo is slightly different.

Replacement of the DC-in/sound board is not the easiest repair, and I've often done it but then had to go back in again because I forgot something (forgot to hide a chunk of the cabling under a component before screwing down that component, for example), but it's very do-able. Just make sure to power the machine on and test everything before you screw the rest of the machine and topcase together, in case you have to go back in again to correct something.
