You really shouldn't unplug the battery while it's powered up like that..I'm not meaning to be mean or anything.. I know about brain injury. Been there done that.. Still dealing with that(roof-snow-sidewalk).. Anyway I think you could be in a bit of a bind.. It's all about money.. Hate to say it, but I think unless you take it to a reputable Mac repair shop and spend some money, I believe it could be end of the road for it. And even then it might not be worth it depending.. You might be better off upgrading or seeing if you know someone that might have one for cheap or free.. That fan shouldn't be on full like that. It looks like you've got the keyboard and trackpad cables unplugged or torn.. couldn't tell from the video. I did similar thing a couple years ago to mine(wine). Fried it. Fan was on full just like yours, sometimes would boot and not even see the SSD(folder icon), but mostly wouldn't even boot(SMC fried I'm guessing). Keyboard didn't work when it did. Battery went bad. Got on FB Marketplace and found another one just like it locally and bought it for quick fix(390$ at the time). Fortunately the 2TB SSD I had in it did survive. I did have a Time Machine backup so I wouldn't have lost any data, but I didn't have to spend more money for a new SSD too so that was good. Yeah, I would see if you can find a good repair shop locally and see what can be done if anything. I know easier said than done. I had only one that I knew of somewhat local and they pretty much closed up shop when covid hit so that's why I found one on FB.. I saved all the parts from my old one. It's in a box.. Only screen and wifi card might be ok, plus the chassis of course.. that's about it. Liquids and electronics don't mix well.. Sorry I can't be of much help really. Good luck. Hope you can find something to try and recover. I know the frustration first hand!!
