tap, as long as they are just starting threads and not the whole thing.
Such as you can use a 12x1.5 tap to clean up some 12x1.25 threads.
And if you wish to get just a straight 12x1.25 tap, good luck.
I've tried to find one for myself, and they are next to impossible to get.
As for your second question, if you are going to drill it to 1/2 in and re-tap, use
a fine threaded tap.
12x1.25 is considered extra fine, so a fine thread standard should be ok.

I would not be drilling and tapping a body capture nut. They are only spot welded in place. You risk potentially breaking the bond between the body and the nut. If that happens you will be cutting out that section of the frame, welding in a new section and installing a riv-nut, etc.
