Would there be any collateral damage if this was the case, or would I simple be replacing the waterpump along with fan?

Feel free to scare the crap outta my wallet as you let me know that what's what.

'preciate it.

Grab the fan and see if it wiggles back and forth. If it does, then the water pump will need to be replaced. If no wiggle, then just replace the fan. That fan being off balance can grenade and take out the radiator and hoses and can dent the hood from the inside as well
Most problems are usually something simple !
