Yes one can carefully remove a cell and or add another cell to replace it.
You just have to be very careful so you don't short it out.
People have done it quite often, you aren't the first.
i have taken more than one pack apart just to get at the good cells to build another pack from the good cells.

I did that to my Hyperion G3 VX 4200-6S, removed one cell which is punctured (and leak)by a carbon rod in my boat. It's now a good 5S pack serving my 1/8 buggies.

The Hyperion G3 also has PCB inside.
My Turnigy packs are all going strong but should similar thing happen I will do that again.

You got lucky. That cell has tabs that fold over onto the PCB, not through. Super easy to remove one cell.
BE CAREFUL to not short anything in there and best to do this when down close to 3.7 volts per cell as the less in them the safer they are to work on. Still, a 5k size cell packs a LOT of punch when discharged.
