well with no IMEI there isn't much you can do..that is store on a separated chip on the motherboard of the phone...IMEI is unique to all phones...with no back-up you need to change that chip or entire motherboard...as for the baseband it's easy...flash firmware for your country from samfirmware.com

No chance. Motherboard will have to be replaced

You dropped it in water...

Unless you quickly remove the battery and leave it sitting in rice for a few days straight afterwards there is nothing you can do.

In my case .. I leave my phone without the battery and battery cover on top of wifi router ( air hole side up) over night. And flashed stock based custom rom and worked for me... hope it will help

Yes that can work. But unless you take out the battery as soon as it gets wet then it's all over
