Rescuing a new Ekkie?

Would rescuing him be a good idea or should I leave him open to another family to rescue as i delve more into research?

If he plucked from frustration or stress of being left alone he may stop plucking when he's in another home. Who knows. I'm sure he'll be grateful for a new family that can love him like you can.
It looks like there may be a mirror in his cage and I don't see the advantage to that.
If you do bring him home, you might want to do a semi-quarantine as best you can where his cage is in another part of the house and he and Indi can get to know each other by calling out. They will become interested in each other that way and know there is another bird in the house.
I'd follow your vet's advice regarding quarantine, not mine, btw!

It certainly does not mean that your bird has this disease at all. (it is common in cockatoos) But just saying to get a good avian vet to work with you with him. It's wonderful that you want to help him.
