What is the small 「ぁ」doing in 「めでたいなぁ」 and the tilde in 「おめでとさ~ん」?

Stylistic choice and whatever feeling you want to convey, it's like the difference between "hey", "hey~" and "heeey"

For those who are wondering, the full form is "おめでとうございます!"

The shortened form is, I believe, akin to the English "Congrats!"
