Does a blown head gasket mean a blown engine and how does one know if the engine is damaged?

It doesn't necessarily mean a bad engine but with this mileage, you might as well go for a rebuild since if you just do the head it porbably will start using oil.

Sure you CAN, but if you do continue to run an engine with a blown head gasket you will destroy the engine. Do not run any engine with a blown head gasket or you will be buying a new engine.

Usually when the cylinder head gasket is blown (broken or damaged). It cannot be repaired but has to be replaced with a new head gasket.

Sure it will start with a blown head gasket. But, if you continue to run this engine with a blown head gasket you will destroy the engine.

With a blown head gasket the engine will still run, poorly with issues, but run. A blown engine will not continue to run from that moment on.

No. You can have the head gasket replaced. This is unless you kept driving the car with a blown head gasket and have totally destroyed the engine.
