Magnets should be hard and very britle.
As you try to drill them out it is more likely that it will crack.

Good luck.
I think you best bet is to heat it up so that you can remove the magnet.
They do sell donut shape magnets (used all the time in wooden toy trains) that you could epoxy back in place.
