None of the parts you have been mentioned are structural(outside of prescribed areas),so yes it would pass an MOT.But,the panels are welded on from the factory so they do form part of the crash protection of the vehicle so I think you would be wise to have them welded.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
