Take it to a smith, have it fixed correctly, and present your 'friend' with the bill. I'd want a smith to check it out if it was mine.

Use a bore brush in a cordless drill to try and clean the chamber with some oil or lead solvent

anyone know if this thing was rifled? hope if it was or something similar, it didnt screw that up. but chances are since it screwed up the inside anyways (that was determined when i found out what happened) how should i go about repairing it. undoubtedly it scraped up the inside pretty good anyways. just curious.
Rifled barrels don't have chokes in them and you do not have a model T because they didn't go that high. If you have the full choke you have one of the first variants and you might be looking at an F only obscured to look like a T. If you have the C-lect choke it is one of the second variants. To the best of my knowledge this shotgun never had a slug barrel for it. Just between you me and the neighbors dog cleaning will not help if something is cracked or broken, you need a good qualified gunsmith to determine that.

correct me if I'm wrong but everything on the gun can be repaired or restored by a competent gunsmith?

find one, instruct him on what happened and what youd like done both chamber and choke, pay the man and submit the bill to your friend in small claims court. it's a hassle but he deserves it. if he won't be a man on his own accord, force him to.
