I can probably get a window unit for >150$ so, modding seems like a much more wallet friendly idea to me haha.

I would need to figure out what material would be most cost effective to encase the back side in and vent the air out.
For getting the water to drip out you could probably get the water to drain better if you dented part of the bottom of the air conditioner and drilled a hole at the lowest point then just take some tubing to a pan or something. And as far as ducting it out the window sound fine but I would put a fan in the window to pull to air from the vent so you are getting sufficient flow and the air just doesn't sit there. From the pictures you have drawn in another post it looks a little far from the window. Depending on how insulated the vent is i would make it closer to the window. The tube for my portable gets extremely hot and cycles allot of the heat back into the room so i had to insulate it with a blanket. There was a significant temp drop after that. For ceiling up the back of the unit i was thinking something like a garbage bag but if you want something that looks a little better i would go with one of funnel like things they use for venting in a house (don't know the name of them) and just ceil it onto the back.
