Question: Would you accept help from some of the pro coders in the community to help sort out the technical debt?

    I'm not sure it works that way

    Technical interest rates are low, so the technical debt is not a big deal.

    I've spent most of my software-engineering career so far reducing technical debt, and it's always been a focused effort by folks deeply involved in the project.

    Major refactoring, it's probably obvious, is really aided by quick reliable automated testing. Depending on project size and structure, a distributed build system with caching can really pay off. Setting that up, if needed, might be more feasible as a limited-term contribution, but still requires familiarity and concerted effort.
