The head must be removed and resurfaced. A blown headgasket is, for all practical purposes, ALWAYS the result of a warped head. A machine shop can resurface the head then a new headgasket can be used when the head is replaced. Unfortunately there are plenty of other pieces that must be removed/replaced as a part of the process. If you want to do it yourself you might want to have an experienced helper to show you how.
Built in the alternator

It normally means you have a blown head gasket. STOPdriving this car until you have it looked at by a professional.
Nope, the Ram 50 was a compact pickup import from Mitsubishi, with a Mitsubishi engine and tranie, so a domestic 318 made to fit full-sized dodge trucks and the dakota/other big cars, won't fit onto a compact pickup tranie. Impossible.

The 1988 Beretta can run hot for several reasons. The Coolant could be low, the thermostat stuck, the water pump is bad, or there could be a blown head gasket.
Yes. If the head gasket is blown between the water jacket passages and the cylinder it self you are pushing exhaust gases into the water when under load and also possibly leaking a little water back into the cylinder when after you have run it and then shut it off.
