The conventional wisdom is that this is a possibility with high mileage engines. But the option of just rebuilding the head versus the entire engine would make the choice easy for me -- I'd rebuild the head... I would say the probability that a new head would damage the engine is kinda low.

Yes, you can, but not exactly recommended. If you are going to go that deep into it, then might as well do everything else. However, being unemployed tends to have a negative impact on the wallet....
I suspect it is more than just rings. I think that the walls have been scored badly as well. You may be able to use a borescope to take a peak into the cylinder through spark plug hole. Move the piston to bottom of stroke, and see what you can see. If scarred, much work will be needed. If hatches look alright, then you might be able to get away with just rings.
What kind of compression are you getting on #1 vs #2? This also might be a blown headgasket into an oil passage, or the head (perhaps block?) is ever so slightly warped in this area.

SOURCE: 1999 Yamaha Kodiak Front Disc Brake - Rebuilt master cylinder with new parts. Replaced orings on piston in front caliper and bleed brakes using new fluid. The piston will not retract. What is proble
The brake hose is clogged. When under pressure from applying breaks, the piston is forced tight to the rotor. When released the fluid will not return through the hose because there is no real pressure. Replace the hose.
