Timing belt breaking has it own set of needed repairs to fix since it broke while running, the overheating causes the head to warp so its toast now, your pistons (or even rods/cam/valves but doubt it) may be too, so it has high miles too, Just replace it.

Time for a new vehicle. At 18 years old and 300,000 miles it's not worth putting the kind of money in it it would take to fix it. Instead, use the money towards something newer with less miles on it. HTH. -Jim
