I had an idea a while back, that modules could be dismantled in to handy "components" for transportation, kinda like manufactured materials, but cargo.
This was pre-module transfer.
This could then be applied to your salvage idea, that you can extract components from wrecks(shoot it with a mining laser, collect the bits that drop off as cargo), and take them home and store them, (rent a workshop).
Once you have enough components to make a whole module, you assemble it, using the components and various data and materials.
You can then transfer the module to your module storage, or sell it for profit.
Of course, what you get from a wreck is quite RNG, so it'll take some effort to find all the components for 1 module, especially if that module is huge class 8 power plant or something.
