If I am not mistaken you mean the countersunk screw that sits in the mounting plate on top of the gear (attached, circled red).

This screw is not designed to screw into the servo, It only provides support and prevents the gears from spreading apart. You mount the small M2-M3 screw of the servo wheel through the bearing, and then you mount the plate on top of this. The 16mm screw is only attached to the plate, and fits through the bearing bore to provide additional support.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

Can this be printed with PLA?

I don't see why not. PET would be better, but I printed it mostly in PLA

A few years ago I saw this project and I didn't have a printer. I finally managed to buy one and I am looking to start it.
As soon as I print the pieces I will share here with you.

For those who have already done it, what was the infill used to print the parts?
Does it really takes between 100h / 200h ?

Cool to hear you giving the Glados a try.

I did say the 100-200h time. Nowadays it might be less, it was 6 years ago. I think I printed at something like 3 perimeters, 20% infill and 0.2mm layer heights. This is what I would do these days at least. Some parts do have challenging supports. Something to be aware of.

Best of luck printing and please do share your progress.

Thanks for this great project! :) Is there any chance that you would release the actual CAD files? I'd like to try making a version that uses linear actuators to move the head around (like in the game).
