Default Mixing batteries

I have a 2002, 48 volt club car. One battery post has melted, resulting in a loose terminal. Can I drill down and put a self tapping screw into the post? Can I replace the bad battery with a 12 volt? The problem is I am on a small Bahamian Island and getting a replacement battery is an ordeal. My other batteries are 3 years old?

Here's the link to the post "scottyb" is talking about:

The only thing I'll suggest to do differently is to try and find a stainless steel stud. It will not corrode. :)

I would definitely try to fix it using the terminal repair instructions.
If you decide to get another battery, it cannot be a 12v. It needs to be an 8v like the rest.
