I've managed to solder over a useful hole... How can I fix this and get what I need in that hole? I've tried heating it up and sticking my headers through, but it cools too quickly to be able to do that.

A solder sucker to suck it up or solder braid to soak it up.

Pick up some soldering wick and a cheap desoldering pump.  Very useful tools to have on hand, and the wick allows hand soldering ever fine pitch smd chips.

The above are examples, you can undoubtably find cheaper versions

Blow through the hole while solder is molten, usually works.

I assume those remove the excess metal used to solder... but I have neither. Any other solutions?
