Yes, there are people on Craigs that will do it today for 500, so it's better than replacing it unless milage is so high bottom end is no good. The important thing to diagnose before you decide is why it overheated. That may/may not be expensive.

ondo valve cover, bolts remove valve cover, remove old gasket from valve cover and block. clean both surfaces well. put gasket glue on one side of gasket and install on cylinder head. align valve cover than replace bolts . tighten in a cross pattern until thet are snug. don't overtighten.
I don't know where the thermostat is physically located on a Focus specifically, but if it is underneath the water neck on top of the intake manifold it may be a poor sealant & gasket used when the water neck was mounted/installed. Perhaps you may want to refer to a Chilton's guide for the Ford Focus to replace the thermostat gasket and sealant?
Loss of coolant with no apparent leak, white smoke from the exhaust. oil level overfull, a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap, and air bubbles escaping from the radiator. A compression test will verify if the gasket is blown.

My '01 Focus just blew its head gasket. The mechanic quoted me at $1200. At ford Dealer ship? Yea have fun spending that kind of money. The gasket itself you can pick up for 30$ max. Find someone who knows even a little about a car, and they will prolly do it for 50$ and a six pack of beer.

You can not replace it unless it's an old ford focus.

Just as long as you want to cause more and more damage every mile you drive. Just keep driving it and you will eventually need a new engine. The short answer is not one foot, in fact do not even start the engine.
