Ok , when u turn the key the engine cranks (turn over is the same as cranks), but it won't start. U have to determine if there is spark at the spark plugs, if there is then u have to determine if gas is reaching the spark plugs. This must be fixed 1st before the running hot issue, and I don't believe the catalytic converter has anything to do w/ your problems you have described.
So 1st u must get the car running again. As far as overheating, why did the shop think it was the head gasket? So u have several problems, but unfortunately, not enough information to work with yet. Let me know when u determine if the no start issue is due to no spark, or no gas. Good Luck!

dear friend-i do not think the oil comes from the hear gasket but rather from the distributor,make sure that the oil is not running down onto the head gasket and the shows as a oil leak from the gasket.
