there are 7 12mm nuts on the manifold and 2 bolts on the manifold brace-remove the brace from underneath and the oil filter and you should be able to get to the nuts on the bottom--the ones on top you should be able to see and get a wrench on from the top-take it lose and push it back to clean and reinstall

Remove intake and exhaust manifold. Remove head and replace the gasket. This is a major repair best left to a professional.
The intake manifold and exhaust manifold must be removed. Then the head must be removed and the gasket replaced. The head must be checked for cracks and to see if it is warped. Then it is all put back together.
No, the head gasket is underneath the heads where they mount onto the block. Your intake manifold is bolted to the top of your heads. Some motors have coolant that circulates in the intake manifold ( I don't know what year or make your vehicle is ) so I would check my shop or repair manual. There could be a crack where the coolant flows through your intake manifold or one of the manifold gaskets may need replacing.
to repair a head gasket on a car is extensive. most cars, you will need to pull the intake manifold, exhaust manifold, timing belt/chain, water pump. it really depends on your year make and model. and then you engine size. sometimes when your head gasket goes out, that is the death of your engine
If you have a leaky intake manifold gasket, one or more cylinders may run extra lean. A lean burn condition can result in excess combustion heat and eventually burn valves or burn through a piston. Most mechanics will strongly recommend that you repair a leaking intake manifold gasket.

Sounds like a blown headgasket or intake manifold gasket. Sounds like a blow intake gasket to me...It happened to My 86 Mustang and my 96 Lumina.
Absolutely not. The two are not related in any way. If this was just a personal concern, just replace the intake manifold gasket. If this was what a repair station has quoted or already charged you for, Id go somewhere else or talk to a lawyer respectively.
