Yes, it is possible to re-enable secure erase. All you need to do is to format the partition once again. Just make sure you select "Mac OS Extended (Journaled, Encrypted)", with any password that you will remember (just in case).

Image editing software is the only way to go here. You'll have to determine which you want to use if you want us to be able to help you out how to do it. If it's a usual window, the easy route would be to only screenshot that window (cmd+shift+4, then hit the space bar and click the window). That will be easy to fill in.

It's very, very unlikely that the board would be okay ...

It can't find the kernel files. When you turn on your Mac make sure you pressing and holding the the "Option" key then selecting the USB flash? If you are still having difficulty, then the creation of the USB flash disk didn't go so well. I am assuming that you have a good DMG image of the Snow Leopard DVD. You can't just "copy" or restore the image to ...
