    drill a hole or use a pick this will allow water to come from underneath and resurface the pond

    Either do what Lander said, or just flood a layer on top using a hose or pails if it's a smaller rink.

    Yeah you could go with the drill method to basically reflood it. Depending on how it is, we usually would just skate on it anyway because as you skate, the ice will get smoother

    We have squeegees that we use to smooth out the ice once we finish a game and flood it at night so we get a nice smooth surface in the morning. You can buy them or build them yourself. I have a friend who is pretty handy and built 5 or so. They work very well once you've torn the ice up a little bit.
