93 4.0L with foam in radiator

Hey all first post and I could really use some advice. I noticed yesterday my engine wasnt getting hot and I got no heat. When I got into work this morning I touch the radiator cold, engine not strangely warm, checked the radiator and It was full of foam? And oil was clean at the dipstick. I let it sit a bit while I hit the internet looking for answers. Now I just went to check the head gasket. I noticed the foam had turned back to coolant when I opened up the radiator. Started the engine and got some bubbles and then the foam. FML
I got a could of questions

Does this sound like it could be anything else beside the head gasket?

anyone happen to know what am I looking at for cost to fix the head gasket vs replace the engine?

Any good shops between Canton MA and Somerville MA (boston area)?

Any good junk yards between Canton MA and Somerville MA (boston area)?

can I drive it home today without making the problem much worse?

What would you do in my shoes??

Thanks in advance for the help all.
