Should I decide to do it - would it help the machine run cooler if I milled or drilled some holes on both sides of the bottom case?
 
Yes, of course, you just need to do it in the right places. Be aware that most images on the WEB showing drilled Macbooks have the holes in the wrong place because people didn’t understand that the Macbook fan in Centrifugal and didn’t study the Macbook Airflow.

* Best place to drill air intake holes is on the Blue Arrows. Or Blue+Yellow
