I have used command adhesive hooks on my front door for holding my wife seasonal door signs for years. I have had to replace the strip behind it maybe 5 times. I also use command adhesive strips and hooks for hanging my christmas lights. I typically have to replace the strips on about 5 each year when hanging lights and maybe 1 or 2 hooks. I have them around my front windows and along my eaves something like 50 hooks. I also use just the adhesive strips behind mirrors on the wall in my living room (6 decorational mirrors) and they have been hanging for 3 years. So I have to say, try a command adhesive hook solution. Get one for a heavier load and it will hold up better.

If this was me and I was set on using that door and hook then I would take the following steps:

1. take door off jamb
2. measure where you want the hook to be placed width wise on the door
3 take a utility knife and separate the veneer from the solid blocking at the top for about 3-1/2"
4. Take my oscillating tool with a flush cut blade and cut the the section out
5 plane down a 2x4 block so it fits
6 dry fit it to see if it fit
7 apply glue to the block and fit it only the opening
8 clamp and remove glue squeeze out
9 when dry use screw that came with the hook to fasten it where the block was inserted
10 now you end up with a door that still looks the same and a hook that is up to the task of what it's intended for

That is just how I would do it though, I don't know if it is worth the effort for you or not.
