So honestly do you think this project in any form is worth while?

This is strictly my opinion... you must have enough airflow happening already as you mention nothing about having any heat issues.

Sure, do the mods for experience though if you have the time, tools & $$$.

Adding a moderate flow blow hole to the top wouldn't likely hurt.... two wouldn't be advantageous because they would draw to much air away from the back of the MB where its needed to help cool the MB component...
What that means is the natural flow, in the bottom/front and out the rear/top and to much at the top will detract from the function of the rear exhaust which is important.

Just so you know I picked up my 832 stacker for $110 after $60 MIR on Newegg, they're getting much cheaper if that's a route you'd like to go.

I would put a big 120mm fan on the top of the case to vent out all the hot air out the top of your case. If you're pumping so much air in, you need to get it out nearly as fast.
