Question about Ford Focus
Generally speaking you need some kind of engineers certificate to confirm the repair does not affect the safety of the car so the first mechanic is correct. It should be repairable probably worth seeing an engineers workshop or car body repairer most mechanics would run from this one too hard for them.

Take it to a Lincoln dealer. The Lincoln body has a longer warranty than most cars. Your liftgate may not be made of metal, but the through and through failure warranty from Rust could be questionable enough to cover it.
We had a new door and trunklid warranteed after 5 years on our Mark 7. Plus they painted the entire car.

you will have to replace the complete assy. the cheapest way is look for a complete wrecking yard seat, or have yours welded at a local machine shop

your engine is fine. find a new mechanic.
if the exhaust clogs it just dies. your cat ( converter) probably clogged due to a very rich condition, which was detected by the computer, hence the light. my bet is a clogged fuel injector or a sensor (either oxygen or air flow) failed. this made it run rich and the cat probably melted.
get a new cat installed, have them run the codes.
