If I had a good handle on how the report system works, I would suggest to report those posts so mod could update the link(s) in them (this would also work for any other posts). However, if reporting impacts the poster's account in some way (e.g. if we had a karma system, and reported posts counted as negative karma), this wouldn't work so well.
Since the old quotation format doesn't include any identity info like a post id, I guess it'd be really difficult to accomplish it automatically. Maybe we can just ask the users who quoted those links to remove them from their posts, as an image in a quote is not necessary and unsightly.

There's none I'm aware of, unfortunately.
Actually, I could think of one. If you access to all your posts from your profile, you can search within your posts for the keyword "http:" or the domain name of the host where you placed these images. But since "http" is marked as a too common word by the search query, some adaptions to the searching rules is required.

However there's more circumstances to worry about if we're to promote this movement, like users who have been inactive for a very long time and could had abandoned their accounts. Besides, is it all about links to images? Waht about http links to web pages? If it's the former case I think the final antidote for a full cleansing would be forcing those URLs to link to https. 8D
May you find peace in this puzzle-solving game. Say it with action: click the Image when you get helped.:)

Your best bet would be probably to see what's available on the Internet Archive; that way, you could grab the actual HTML/CSS instead of just having to recreate the appearance from screenshots.
True, completely forgot about that.

The insecure content warning is only related to content that's actually served to the browser in the process of displaying the page. So in addition to the page itself, it warns for any CSS or JavaScript files that are embedded but served over HTTP, as well as any images or other content files. Since nothing more is loaded for them, though, it isn't affected by ordinary links to other pages, so HTTP links are fine. (Though of course, if you want to update HTTP links in your posts to HTTPS as well, no one will stop you. :) )

I was doing a bit of research, and I found this :

SubSilver for 3.2.5

DEMO

Just need then to add the banner and the background.

Seems to be a quick way to get back the old style.
