You sir, seem like you have both the willingness, and confidence in your abilities, to rebuild your own engine. Everyone has to start with their first one...
Buy a good repair manual for the car and start studying the engine rebuilding section. It's really not hard, patience and attention to detail are the most important things when it comes to engine building. Aside from a basic set of tools, you can usually borrow most of the speciality tools that you will need from the auto parts store and you can rent an engine hoist.
Also, start asking around about who is a good automotive machinist in your area. A good machinist is the key to a successful engine rebuild.
There is a great deal of satisfaction in going out to your car every morning, getting in, and firing up the engine that YOU built!
