I have used a blow gun to cool it and a wet rag. The wet rag always left behind moisture making for bad welding after. The blow gun is much better (this is my preferred way to shrink metal also) but you should not have to cool it either way if you take your time and spot weld a little at a time.

As far as the original question. I would just try to weld the gap shut and copper pipe does not have to be on the inside, it will still work you have it outside and weld to it. Or you can make a flange.
