Will the tailgate from a 1995 Toyota 4Runner fit a 1997 Toyota 4Runner?

You have a 3rd generation 4runner. A second generation 4runner parts will not work on yours. You need 3rd gen parts. Although I have a second gen 4runner. Most of your parts will work on my truck. Trying to do what your asking is next to impossible without some custom fabrication

Installed head gasket and timing belt, will not start 1997 toyota 4runner

Be sure you have the crankshaft mark and cam mark are still in position. They do NOT move, EVER. If the were to move, it would throw the cam timing off, and THAT's not supposed to EVER happen. Running it with cam timing off will not work. It won't run. As you can well see. IF it's moving, there's something else wrong, like most likely the tensioner is malfunctioning and not keeping the belt tight.

Should I change timing belt/water pump

Your 1997 Toyota with the 3.4 L V6 is an interference engine. This means if the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. The belt must be replaced at 90,000 miles or 10 years under normal conditions and 60,000 under severe conditions. So, you need to have the belt replaced immediately as you are over the maximum of the belt's life. I would not drive this vehicle anywhere except to a trusted mechanic to have the belt replaced. The same belt that drives the cam also drives the water pump. In order to replace the water pump the cam belt must be removed. For that reason and the fact that the pump will not last 180,000 miles I highly recommend you have the water pump replaced at the same time as the cam belt. This will save you on labor cost later on when the pump would fail. Plus it might save more if the engine overheats. As you are going to replace the water pump this is a great time to drain and flush the cooling system and replace the thermostat which may or may not have been done in the past. You also will need to replace the spark plugs if that has never been done. Remember this is an INTERFERENCE engine. Keep driving the vehicle without replacing the belt and you are driving a time bomb that can explode at any time. Hope this is helpful to you.

1997 4Runner oil quantity

For a V6 # Liter engine, you will use a galon and almost half (that is about 6 Liters of oil). I use a Toyota camry V6 3 Liter engine that shares the same engine with the Toyota 4Runner.
