I have no way to tell how you were doing it before without being able to see the original cfg files, which you cannot find.
MRTG can collect its data from SNMP or from an external plugin. Since you say SNMP is and always has been disabled on these devices, I assue whoever set it wrote a custom data collection plugin script to do the data collection, using some other method I am not aware of.
You can check the documentation on the MRTG website on how to create a custom plugin.
You will need to find out for yourself how to query the status of these devices remotely without using SNMP.
