Did you resurface the head? if not you may be having a leak on the headgasket, another possibility is a bent valve due to overheat.

Can I repair a bad cylinder without taking apart the motor in a 2000 Monte Carlo?

Are you talking about compression readings? If so, and you only have 30 psi, engine is in serious state of disrepair. The cylinder head will have to be taken off to fix the problem-sounds like a stuck valve, a non sealing valve, or a blown head gasket. There's no way to get to it without removing the head.
Apparently you had a compression test done? If you had done or would do a leak down test of that cylinder, it would pinpoint the source of the problem-whether an intake or exhaust valve, or a head gasket, or piston or ring damage. With a leak down test, wherever the air is escaping from the cylinder points to the source: if for instance, air leaks out the exhaust pipe, you know it is the exhaust valve not sealing in that cylinder. If air leaks out the intake-it's the intake valve.
Air hissing from the oil dipstick tube would mean compression is being lost past the piston rings-going into the crankcase.

98 monte carlo won't exceed 3000 rpms

Well both of you should look at the MAF sensor. It reads the air volume of the itake and adjusts the fuel accordingly. No air, No fuel, See if that helps

Try first to fill up the radiator while squeezing the top part of the radiator hose to clear out the air.  Observe once that is done.  this may be caused by a radiator cap that is not sealing the pressure correctly or some parts the cooling system that may let heat escape like radiator hoses that are not secure.  If they all seemed to check out, you may want to have your head gasket checked.

Does it misfire under load like when you press on the gas peddle after slowing down then accelerate or at idle. When you say spark plug did you mean all the spark plugs?
