While pulling out one of the MIDI files intact and actually being able to play it was very encouraging, I've decided to change my approach. Rather than trying to convert the disk to a normal floppy, I'm going to start studying the format of the disks and make a tool that can pull the files/info out without having to patch the image. They're clearly in there, I just need to get them out.
With many of the newer Android tablets and phones now sporting USB-C slots, connecting a MIDI keyboard is simpler than ever. A converter cable that has a traditional USB-A or B female connection will work for most MIDI keyboards.
With a MIDI keyboard or other MIDI device not producing an audio signal, it needs to be plugged into another device which can convert the code into something we can hear. In the modern era this is usually a laptop or computer.
