Oh, and what about to the right,
Same thing?
Pretty easy to block between the studs under the cabinet on the left and attaching more backing to the left stud on the left side. Can't see the right side but I guarantee there’s a fix without pulling the cabinets.

You don't need to attach to a stud and you don't need to go to the top plate.
Simply clean your existing cut lines square to each other. Then put some backing behind the edges and cut your patch to fit.

best steps to take to guarantee its placed back in the exact spot?
When replacing cabinet attach a piece of wood directly under and against the existing cabinets that will extend to the area where the reattached cabinet will go.
Make sure it's level, then use this wood to support the cabinet your installing until it is secured to the wall and the other cabinet. .

And you can not run an extension cord behind drywall, going to need to run romex and an outlet.

Very doable if you have the skillset, otherwise trim is your friend.
