Try the negative with the enlarger lens at wide and small apertures as this will effect the depth of focus at the negative stage (can't remember now which way gives more or less depth).

Once plastic film is distorted it is not really possible to flatten it with pressure alone. Heat + pressure might work but the amount of heat needed might be enough to destroy the negative: which many would consider is not an ideal solution to the problem...

I suspect that using some kind of home-made glass carrier will be the only way. Depending on your enlarger's carrier setup, it may be possible to hack a carrier out of some glass, rubber bands and card or thin plywood etc.

I hope someone else will have a better idea than mine!

Good luck, Bob.
