Big engine shake, ton's of white smoke. Bubbling oil out.

2003 F-350 6.0
It started having trouble about a month and a half ago. We parked it to become a project truck and bought a new F-150. We got around to it today finally. Drained the oil to check for coolant. Nothing. We charged it, put oil in it and she cranked right up. But man, was that idle ever rough. It honestly felt like when you shut off the engine the entire time. Now here is the problem. It is bubbling oil out of a spot on the driver side.(I have a picture of a engine that is pulled for reference) Oil is bubbling out of there. And white smoke, Lots of white smoke out the tailpipe, you would think it was a cold winter day. But it sounds normal running. Just very shakey. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Possibly a blown head gasket? Have you pressure tested the cooling system yet? If oil is coming from between the head and block... I'd lean towards a head gasket! Since its a project truck, tear it down and put head studs in it. Might me shacking like crazy because the cylinders are filling with coolant...

So, I am going to try to explain this the best I can, There are 4 plugs on the drivers side on the motor underneath the air filter with blue rings, it is leaking from number 6 cylinder's plug. Also attached is a link to the video of the truck running yesterday. It smelt like diesel, not coolant. Also there is no oil in the coolant. It is also smoking or steaming from under neath the air filter in the same area as the plug. I am not sure what it is, But I am almost positive the head isn't bad.
Thanks for your help!
