Welcome to the forum

I assume that it is still connected to the ac unit. I also assume you are replacing it with one you can find right size filters for. If that is so you need to make sure that you have one close to or a little more sq " of filter area so as not to starve the furnace of fresh air.

Drywall repair is easy. If necesary nail or screw new drywall in place. Take a broad knife and smear an even coat of joint compound over the gaps and smooth joint tape on the mud cleaning off the excess with the knife. When dry apply another coat of mud, repeat until it looks good. It normally takes 3-4 coats with sanding on the last 1 or 2.
