Just like in this pic I found. Yet on some other pics of the same PSU it doesn't seem to be like this.

I definitely can't insert the 4th screw for more than 1-2 mm before it gets blocked.

So, is that plastic supposed to be there, is it supposed to "slide" away when I screw it, or do I dare to try in case I break something?
You can go ahead and screw in there. The plastic is just plastic to prevent the bottom of the PCB from touching the steel housing. The PCB is actually notched out there to allow for a long mounting screw.
