Consider designing a little daughterboard on which you could put your PMOS. This will add a production step, but it can be somewhat automated, since the PMOS can be soldered during a normal run on the panelized daugherboards. Then you would have to separate the daughterboards an plug them on the main boards using some kind of connector. That's better that ...


Just 'blue wire' the FET in. You can deadbug the part (turn it upside down) and either bend the pins (very carefully as they are easy to break) or wire a large gauge wire to the pins. (there are some assembly houses that might do this for you also if you create clear instructions). The gate carries almost no current so you can use a smaller wire for that (...


It's unfortunate, but you probably just need to get new PCBs made. You've learned an important lesson today, to always double check your package pinouts! For the purposes of running tests, you may be able to just cut the traces on the PCB and use wires to connect the FET to what it should be connected to, or connect it with wires while it's insulated from ...
