You need to find out if the fire or fuel quits and go from there

If your Subie is a newer model (mine is 2015) you have to unlock it with the remote-equipped key, and start it with the same key. Otherwise you can run into the "engine immobilizer" that kicks in if you are not using the correct key with the proximity sensor built in.

Why would the front differential dipstick get pushed out and spray oil on a 99 Subaru legacy outback It has been -30 and my car hasn't ran for a couple days When it did start it did this?

The reason for a oil spray out of the front differential dipstick in a 1999 Subaru Legacy is because of the cold. While it was -30 the car oil thickened, when the engine started and tried to pull the oil through, pressure was created.The engine was not able to pull the thickened oil in and the pressure pushed the oil out of the dipstick.

Replacing the timing belt is a complicated procedure that is impossible to describe in this small space. The engine in your Subaru is an INTERFERENCE engine. As such if they belt is installed incorrectly and you start the engine you will do damage. I suggest you purchase Haynes or Chiltons repair manual for your car. It will describe in detail with photos how to replace the cam belt.

Why would a Subaru Outback overheat?

You are not giving enough information to get a reasonable answer. It's like asking why it won't start. Any, and I mean any, detail would help. Are we talking about the engine cooling system? What are the symptoms that bring you to the conclusion it is overheating? Have you checked the coolant level? What year and size engine? Does it overheat only when stressing the engine, like climbing hills? Does it overheat only in traffic and okay on the highway? Does it overheat when the car is idling? Has the head gasket ever been replaced?
