Question random exhaust questions. Hole drilling

I have the stock exhaust on a 2001 sport 5.2L, I want to make it sound just a taddd more deep and throaty.

Obviously the answer for that is to get a new muffler or a glasspack or something like that. BUT thats not in the budget, even a cheap one.

So can I drill some holes somewhere in the muffler or the pipes?
If so, what diameter?
where at?

Ive heard that drilling hold causes like, internal rusting or something like that.
Well the outside is really rusty and falling apart, so a new muffler of something like that will be happening between 1-2 years. hopefully before 1. buttttt yeah.

So will drilling be okay for now?

Also, will that affect gas millage anyway? I think I already have a leak somewhere because you can kinda hear the exhaust coming out from the side.

Would that leak affect anything important? how do you find/fix that leak?

Thanks!
