Remove those two screws along the wall in your pic 1 and see if that panel cones down to reveal the mount screws. Most built-in inserts I've seen have the mounting screws hidden behind the filter mesh/grate.

Taking a picture against the light doesn't help us to see in to the unit. Usually There's screws holding the unit to the cabinetry inside the outer edges of the unit.

Elektromec is the motor and is widely used by lots of manufacturers...could be a Broan, could be a Wolf.

Tx Guys with work light put into it and bit of bending and twisting I do see some screws ,which might work .
Secondly found this sticker inside ,where can I find this motor ,or would it be better to change the whole insert which is 20 long and 14 wide .
I recently switched from 30 “ electric to Gas 30” .Was wondering if this size will be ok with gas or should get bigger one .
Lastly any brand recommended , gas cook top is 50 k BTU.

Your choices to replace it relatively easily and cheaply depends on where it vents to. A higher CFM hood may require larger diameter ducting.
Cream rises to the top. So does scum.
