I will give you my opinion for what it's worth. Your first question-bolts stretch and sh$t happens. New engine I'm going to guess around $15-18g installed (just what I have been told in the Midwest) could find a used for around 3-4g. Really going to need a complete engine if yours has sent debris through the engine. Could also sell parts off of yours to re-coup some of the cost. To sell the whole truck in the shape it's in will hit you hard. I have bought 5 in the past year from auctions 03-07 mostly crew cab lariats 120,000-260,000 from 2-4g. The last one was an 06 king ranch the dealer told him needed a new engine off the rollback for 4 grand. You could make more by parting the truck out on E-bay or Craiglist lot of work and annoying phone calls but you would get more cash for it. Nothing I have wrote is set in stone just what I have seen locally. Could be different in your area.

99 superduty crew cab 4x4
95 f250 4x4
91 ID IBronco Centurion (rough) but only 895 miles
86 IDI f250 4x4 (just bought)
2000 custom bike I built

We sell remanufactured long blocks starting at $4895. but you would still have to pay the 26 hours labor and parts/fluids to swap it out. Personally I think it would be worth fixing. Unfortunately, I agree with Nathan as far as the value. I've been buying them and putting new engines in. At auction I've seen them go for $2-4,000 with bad engines.
I might be willing to take it as a trade on a 03 F-550 crew cab XLT with a 12' flat bed that I'm putting an engine in. New long block, new injectors, hpop & lpop, oil cooler. I've been driving the truck for 4 months but it's got a cracked piston in it so I'm putting a new engine in it soon.
