There are other options, but for complete with most/all protection schemes, you'll want external hardware..

One note about this option tho, it depends on how the disk fails.
I have saved my Super Hang On doing this, but...
I have an original Tetris disk with an error, but the error is that the disk is bad.
I can't burn back to that disk..
I can burn back to another disk, so I suppose I'm looking at somehow removing the label, and moving it to a good disk..
(With a 5 1/4", it wouldn't be that hard to replace just the media, but not sure I can do that with a 3.5" disk)

Crack open the original disk, remove the original floppy (platter?) and insert a good working (platter).

If you remove the metal slider and crack open the bottom of the floppy case, then the (platter) can be removed easily without damaging the floppy case.
