I already performed a factory reset on android, but I can't get to webos to do the same, since I can't select that option on moboot. Any idea what I can/should do?
You said that is unsafe to use, but you were able to charge the battery and took the charge, also boot into Android.
Due to the heat build up inside the covering around the battery bloated with air. ( trapped air )
The home button is not touching the connector and will not work as you know.
You can use TWRP, all its functions are by touch and the home button is not need it to execute any commands.
You can use the Wipe_All flash zip file from this guide:

The home button is not need to perform any function in TWRP.
If you do not have it in the Menu, it can be loaded into Memory attaching the Tablet to a PC.
As you know, your Tablet is working. Is all up to you, but is a very quick fix to have your home button working again.
