Revive an impaled refrigerator

So, I just skewered my refrigerator.
The buildup of ice in the freezer was so awful I had to use something sharp to chip it away. Imagine my surprise when a small eruption sprays white, chemical-smelling gas at me!

Okay, I know. Stupid.
My three questions:
1) Was the gas Freon, and does it pose any harm to me or the food in the fridge?
(It smelled awful and filled the whole apartment)
2) Can I fix any of the damage myself? I'm in a furnished apartment and my landlord doesn't love me.
3) How much will the repair probably cost from a professional? I'm guessing it wouldn't be worth it since it's a crappy old refrigerator but I'm too broke to buy new one.
