I'm not an expert but to answer one of your original questions, yes a head stud can snap from just sitting, my wrench showed me a beautiful low milage (like 40K) SC in his back lot waiting for 4 or 5 headstuds just because it sat and they rusted.

Depending on how close it snapped (if it did) to the case you can either just replace it delaying the inevitable top end or full rebuild.
