Oil drain bolt threads messed up

Also, if the manual says to remove this bolt as part of the oil removal process, why did no oil come out?

Also, if you have not had the bike running just prior to changing, the oil may have founds it's was back down to the bottom of the bike. You should always warm up your scoot before changing the oil to get it warm and thin so it runs out quicker and easier .

Also, I'm probably missing something obvious, but if you have to over drill and then tap the bore in order to use the Heli-coil, why not just use a bigger bolt after the over drill and tap and avoid the expense of the Heli-coil?

Oh yeah! And the Heli-coil is a stainless thread repair, so the chances of ever having the problem again are almost nill.
