When an engine overheats severly, it usually warps the cylinder heads and allows leakage of oil and water into the wrong parts of the engine, eventaully causing engine failure.

There may be other reasons for the vehicle to be overheating but yes if you have let the reservoir run dry then it wont have suction to draw fluid back into the radiator so you will have to fill the radiator as well.

It is spec for a Toyota and is the only coolant you should use

You can use universal coolant which you can find in any auto parts store, or you can use a coolant for Japanese card, or you can go and get coolant at a local Toyota dealer.
