If it was put away working then, as horrible as it looks, everything should still be correct. I would focus on verifying the operation of the power supply / repairing or replacing it if it is not working, first, before trying to undo any mods.

It's a "multiboard", which was sold with that Lighthouse tower case. 3 floppy drives could be connected, with 2 of them switchable. In my system only 2 where connected, a HD drive as floppy A and the original atari 720 k drive as floppy B.

There's no reason why a correctly connected ATX PSU should damage an ST.. the only caveat being that the ST needs to be checked for shorts on the 12V-Gnd and 5V-Gnd paths -before- connection, because ATX PSUs can source so much current that they would probably try to maintain their output into a near dead short, especially on the 5V rail.
Doing pre-connection checks and if possible Inserting inline fuses into the +12V and +5V feeds from the ATX PSU would address that potential problem.
