Can't you just remove this moulding? It should only be held on with some brad nails.

If it's impossible to get it out, you don't have to go under the moulding. Go about 1/4" away from it and then install a quarter-round type moulding to the exiting moulding.

Undercut the door jam with a "door jam saw". You can probably rent these at bix box stores.

Cut the locking lip off the T&G, and use glue(TiteBond II) to glue the pieces in. This allows you to flat lay and not rotate/angle it in.
