The threaded stud on the top of this valve broke off and I was thinking about drilling/tapping/installing a new stud to repair it. Would I risk damaging any potential guts inside the thing if I went and did that?

Not sure, haven’t tried it , but what have you got to lose? if it works you won’t have to get a new one
if you do nothing you still need a new one

The magnet grounds thu the metal part of the valve, the nut keeps the magnet tight on the valve, so it has a good connection.

I realize that. I just want to know if drilling down a bit into the material would be safe to do.

That stem is hollow, the magnet moves a pintle in there, tho I do not know how solid it is. If your a homeowner just playing, go for it, but if your commercial, go get a new valve.
