You can do at least two things: one - get another one from a wreck in a junkyard, making sure the seats were not involved directly or indirectly in the accident ( worn vehicle, fender bender, etc.). Two - take the piece to a welder and have the crack welded.

I need to replace the front driver side seat in my 1990 240 dl. Will any model year fit or do I need a seat from a 1990 240 dl?

I believe that any 240 seat will fit. You actually want an older one. I think '89 or '90 was the year when they switched to lighter tubing. The '90 through '92 seat frames are nearly all tweaked, and sometimes crack.
If you don't buy new foam, try covering the foam with denim from old blue jeans, fastened on with spray on adhesive. That will keep it from crumbling on the seat springs.

Drivers seat drop all the way back out of nowhere i wasnt even in the car. When i tried to reposition it back forward it looks like the left side would go up the the right side to be stuck. Please advise

pull the seat out of the car by unscrewing the bolts which hold it down. unplug the wiring first.
when you have the seat out and upside down you will see what is broken and you can fix it or buy a replacement seat at a junkyard.

Since you are unsure what is broken I can't tell you how to fix it. BUT, You can go to just about any scrapyard and look at the seats they have, first to see what yours used to look like before it broke and then, if it is anything that will need welding etc, possibly to buy the seat you looked at (not terribly expensive compared to some repairs)

1994 Cadillac Deville front seat recliner broken

Not a very common problem. You can get either the part from the dealer, or the seat from the junk yard. It will have the piece you need to correct the issue.

Driver seat

If it's manual, it is all mechanical. I had the same problem a couple of years ago on my 1997. I ended up taking apart quite a bit of the seat and found a part deep inside that was broken. I don't remember the exact details, but I remember that if the part had failed completely the seat back would have suddenly dropped backward to a fully reclined position; could be extremely dangerous if it were to happen while you're driving it, so you need to get it taken care of ASAP. The broken part wasn't available from the dealer; they'd only sell it as a larger assembly, which was very expensive. It would have been cheaper to buy a complete new aftermarket seat, so I got a replacement part from a junk yard.
