Head gaskets are most likely your culprit if its leaking from the back and outside of the engine.

I'm not sure how to check for it but 90% of the time its the head gasket but sometimes oil will puddle in the intake so that's prolly where the water is coming from in the intake

I think the rear outlet from the firewall to c-block is not a good design. If it leaks, I expect it will be there. If you have stuff leaking that bad you may need a flush to clear blockage. Water pump will keep pumpin and make things worse.

To check the HG you could always do a compression test.

Water in your oil and white smoke out your exhaust definitely sounds like head gasket to me. Compression test should verify that the cylinders where it's leaking should be lower

Keep the cylinders sealed till you can pull them. Keep oxidation from happening if you can. Not sure but it would be smart thing to do.
