Make sure cord will actually fit through the holes before you cut the wire.

Borrow a twist drill. Drill to accept 5mm spectra cord. Chamfer edges.

Don't worry too much about 'weakening' the aluminum. Before wire and before spectra, hexes were drilled for cordage up to 9mm. When BD sold 5mm "Gemini" cord, they also sold plastic inserts to reduce the existing hole size so the 5mm cord would fit tightly.

Edit: That bent cable looks fine to me. I wouldn't bother doing anything.
