I was replacing my alternator and broke the CPS. When trying to pull the CPS out it broke even more and was flush with the hole. After reading some forums online i found a way that was working for most people. This included drilling a small hole and inserting a fine thread screw which you can then pull on to pull the CPS out. In doing this I accidently pushed the sensor all the way into the engine. I can still see it when looking down the hole but it is now offset from the hole and i cannot move it anymore. Looking at the underside of the car, it looks like i can remove the oil pan and then the broken part of the sensor. Am i correct or is the a better way to remove the piece or is it now impossible to fix?

Yes, if you remove the oil pan you can look behind the timing cover and try to get it. But it's something of a job on the Duratec, I hope your exhaust isn't rusted because the Y-pipe has to come off.
