If I understand you correctly, you want to put a threaded hole in the camera case.... NOT the lens module. Most likely you broke the small tabs that hold the front of the case together. The case is not glued there, but rather is held by two tabs and mating "ears". There are instructions for how to open the case in the manufacturer's instruction manual. A copy is linked up front in this thread. Start with post #1 to find it.
FWIW, the case has no room inside for any kind of threaded stud (e.g. a tripod 1.4 in. standard mount). You'd likely either short out components of crack the circuit board if you tried to thread anything into the case. But you could glue on a hex nut to the bottom of the case with epoxy.
