On the last play of the Panthers/Pats game, if Defensive Holding had been called, would it have been just a 5 yard penalty or would the ball have been placed at the 1 yard line?

Although there were aspects of the play that could have been reviewed such as was Brady over the LOS or did the Panthers have too many men on the field, the aspects in dispute (i.e., when did the holding occur and whether the ball was catchable) were not reviewable.
