    can cleaning out ports using a toothbrush scratch the aluminium around them?

    Yes, depending on the toothbrush and what's hanging onto it.

    The bristles shouldn't damage the aluminum and depending how hard your forcing the bristles on the aluminum. I would use a soft bristle brush if you were concerned.

    A microfibre with some isopropyl would do the trick.

    Not to a significant degree. You could always use the toothbrush to dislodge the debris then vacuum it out.
