Take it off then put it back on.

Get a Haynes or Chilton book on the car.

BUT, if they still show using a 'separator' to remove the outer tie rod end from spindle DO NOT do that! Instead:

Two Heavy hammers; Run the nut out to the end of the pin, hold one of the hammers behind the spindle arm boss, then pound the other side of the boss. This 'squeezes' the taper pin loose and does not tear up the dust shield on the outer tie rod end. NEVER USE a SEPARATOR ON ANYTHING, Even ball joints can be separated that way.

Is it possible to replace a single broken rod in a 1996 Ford Taurus or is a whole new engine needed?

You can replace it if there is no block damage. Likely though there will be more than just a broken rod. When the rod broke, it slammed around in there and probably busted, or at least heavily damaged a cylinder wall. The crankshaft was probably also damaged. The crankshaft can be replaced wthout replacing the engine, but if there is damge to a cylinder wall, forget it, it's new engine time.
