Question about Cars & Trucks
Many engines have bolts that are threaded into the water jacket
the procedure is to use a quality liquid thread sealer when installing the stud and tensioning it up
the sealer then goes hard but pliable and a seal is formed in the threads yet the stud can still be removed at a later time with out thread damage to either component
maybe you can use the same principle for your problem

Did the bolt break off flush with the top of the hole? or if you remove the cover is some bolt sticking up? if there is try and use vice grips to get ahold if the bolts if it is flush then drill the bolt out and re-tap the hole. Way cheaper and likely less work too...

had a similar problem myself. wound up being the radiator having a restricted flow in spite of being flushed and cleaned. also have you checked to make sure that your cooling fan is functioning properly? also your cooling system could possibly be airlocked, but i doubt it. i would be willing to bet that it is either your radiator not flowing properly. hope this helps out.

if you can use a thread tap and make a thread in the hole so that you can use a short bolt and washer to seal off the hole

Freeze plug rusted threw. Not fun to replace. I use a socket and extension to push them in the block, then grab it with pliers and pull it out. Then use the socket to drive the new one in.It can be flush to the block or about a 1/16 inch back.
