How do you call those inserts/standoffs that are attached to the frame of a 1911 and are threaded inside to hold the screws that attach the grips to the frame? How are said standoffs attached to the frame: screwed or pressed or what? As I was removing the pornogrip, one of these standoffs came with the grip (and the screw), so now I need to remove its screw so I can remove it from said grip, and then put it back into the frame.

Before you ask, the screw has always been buggered like that when I got it. That's pornogrip for you! PornoGrip_02-sm.jpg

Now, if they are a one-time-install item, where can I get replacements?

Every one of the grip screw inserts I dealt with screwed into the frame of the 1911 pistol and once you get the damaged grip inserts out do yourself a favor and use the green Loctite when you install the new grip inserts. This way you won't be removing them when you unscrew the grip screws. https://shop.1911parts.com/1911-Grip-Bushings_c150.htm

The nomenclature is grip screw bushing. And yes, if you manage to get that one off without buggery and/or have to replace it degrease and install the bushing with blue Loctite which is what I use in case you do want to remove it.

edit:
I edited to add, if you do need to replace that bushing let me know. I have a couple of used but still serviceable ones I’ll send you. Just let me know how many you need.
