Is it possible that the turbo is leaking inside and it's dripping outside of the turbo? There is an oil leak and the turbo is wet. I'm concerned that the turbo is shot and it'll lead to a runaway.

Most of the time it's an oil leak that covers the underside of the engine. To be sure, clean off the engine and over the net few days, look for the fresh leak. it's possible that the turbo is leaking oil but it normally ends up in the intercooler. It can leak out onto the outside but this is unusual, I don't think your car would run well at all if it was this bad.
