>> I feel this could be the best option for both of us, but I am having trouble with the thought of parting with my new friend. Would it be unwise to assume that I (and my vet) can nurse a broken foot on a juvenile iguana back to full health? Is there a risk that it will never heal right and he will have a permanently under functional foot? I'm having a tough time with this decision. He is my first iguana and I have wanted one for longer than I can even explain. I'm feeling really bad about this. What should I do?

With a good vet on your side this is very easy to do. One side note, there is a small chance of amputation. This is also very manageable. I recently had a young green in my rescue who lost his foot and and doing quite well with his nub. Amputation cost was around 200$. It will cost money and take some time, but if you are willing to put forth the effort, it is something you can easily do.
