Does the wire unplug from the coil end? Would I even need to remove the coil?

Yes the plug wire is removable from the coil. The plug wire has a little rubber boot that you slide up the plug wire. Then the wire will unscrew from the coil. The coil has a little inverted screw that the plug wire screws on to. The inverted screw is part of the coil and is neither visible nor removable. You trim the new plug wire to be flat eg cut squarely across then put the boot on the wire, slide it up the wire to give yourself room to work. Then insert the wire into the hole firmly and turn it clockwise to screw it on to the inverted screw. Get the wire in the hole such that the inverted screw will screw into the center conductor of the plug wire. Push the boot back down and you are done. It is kind of tight working when the coil is on the saw, that is why I suggested removing it.
 
Besides, you would then know how to set the coil air gap along with how to replace a tank! ::)

Can I buy a quality replacement wire? Should I try to reattach the boot I have?

You can buy a wire with the boot already attached here:

The big $4, looks like the one that was on it, save the piece of insulation tube and put it on the new wire. Here is a picture of te coil so you know what you are looking for when you remove the starter:

There are two magnets embedded in the flywheel on the same side, there are two poles on the coil, make sure that you ger the two magnets on the flywheel centered (one in line with each pole on the coil) before you tighten the coil bck down. A little blue Loc-Tite on the screws helps to keep the thing from coming loose.

Buy a new one, that one looks to be in pretty bad shape.
