Time to remove motor and take to a machine shop for advice unless you are really experieced. Then your questions can be answered by very knowledgable persons.
My 2 cents!

Broken head bolts can be tough and if you haven't had any experience removing them I'd second that recommendation. You MIGHT be able to bring the entire car in without engine removal so I'd check around first before opting to pull the motor.
