I'd try a reset with a diag first ... it might work.

... and you don't need a whole body ... just the idle actuator on the side ... but make sure it's the same part from the numbers on the plastic body.

You can move the throttle body from a CF3 by hand, as long as you do it very carefully and slowly.
Done that to mine many times and I never had problems and never needed to re-calibrate it.

But the problems you have do seem like it is the TB.

Try first to calibrate it.
