The book that came with my kit states pretty straight forward that after the boil is done to put the lid on and move the pot to a sink with ice water in it. That was my approach. Will a sink of ice water, I got the wort down to 83F in 20 minutes. But it was a partial boil not full 5 gallons. The more you have the longer it takes to cool.

Making our own immersion chiller sounds like a fun project.

The compound you want to "boil off" is DMS. I usually leave the lid on until I achieve 200F, then take the lid off and adjust the flame to maintain a steady boil. No DMS so far.

Keep yourself safe, use the burner outside, the boil will sanitize your wort and if you cool it reasonably fast to pitch the yeast, you have nothing to worry about. The yeast will take over as the dominant colony and any other bugs will not be able to get a foothold.
A nice large yeast starter will also help get rid of any foreign microbes that happen to drop into your sterile wort.
