Crank the engine until the mark on the damper aligns with the TDC mark on the timing tab and the engine is in #1 firing position.
To adjust a valve back off the adjusting nut until lash is felt at the pushrod. Tighten the nut until all lash is removed. This can be determined by rotating the pushrods with your fngers. When all lash is removed the pushrod will stop rotating. When all play is removed rotate the nut one full turn.
With the engine in #1 firing position the following valves can be adjusted:
Crank engine one full revolution - The following valves can now be adjusted:

Sorry to say its your head gaskets. Probably from the overheating it wore out the gaskets. that milky stuff is your coolant mixing with your oil. Good luck. Suggest you take it to a pro. the gaskets are easy to change, it's everything else in the way to get to them that requires special tools and experience. Let me know how it goes. I have the same thing with my truck but not real bad. If your truck is running smooth and doesn't feel like its missing, or when your start it no puff of white smoke comes out your exhaust it's not that big of problem. if these are happening then i would get a quote.

As far as I know all hydraulic lifters can go bad, collapes or stick. And yours are definately hydraulic lifters, rollered yes, which will make them more durable, but they can go bad. The machine shop should have down a leak-down test on the lifters. That is the only way to determine if the lifters are good. I would check that you have proper oil pressure, I'm sure you do. I bought a "rebuilt head" for a Saturn DOHC engine, and the machine shop never did a leak down test on the lifters, and I had the samething happening.
