Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.
I am going to be serious when I say I have zero back-ground experience with Macintosh computers or their hardware.
But based on the errors I see that you posted above, it appears to me like you may have either a corroded contact on the hard drive or motherboard, that connects the drive to the motherboard.
I would try disconnecting the cable at both ends and re-connecting them, lets see if this corrects the problem, it certainly wouldn't hurt and may resolve the problem.
If this does not resolve the problem, then there stands a very good possibility that the drive is failing.
Its either time to clone the drive, or back its contents up, by using this drive as a slave drive to a good working drive with an OS in it set as the master.
As I said I do not have much experience with Macintosh computers, so if my suggestions do not seem to make sense, then that would be my knowledge of Windows OS getting in the way of my better judgment.
But if on the other hand, this does help then I taught myself something new.
