Attaching derailleur - Damaged hanger

Hi guys, wondering if somebody could advise with my trouble, its not that big deal but anyway,

I have ripped off my derailleur hanger and lost threads in frame and now cannot attach the hanger to the frame

I havrapped new threads into the frame - but bit larger as it was about 0,5cm and now its 0.8

im trying to attach derailleur/hanger but im not sure how should be done.

Shall i drill new thread into my hanger? Or is there any reduction i could insert into the frame?

Ive heard that if you drill the derailleur hanger it becomes fragile,

My frame is alu and hanger aome other hard material so cannot do it with tap and die set and need drill probably

Many thanks guys.
