2003 Nissan Maxima SE 6 Speed oil in coolant overflow bottle. HELP

The big question is - is the car worth fixing to you.
If it is paid for, and you are ok with driving it for another 2 or 3 years, it may be worth fixing. If you are getting tired of driving it, maybe not.
You can find out what it is worth and then decide.
Oil in the coolant with a manual trans car usually means oil from the engine. That can be from any number of places, from a head gasket, intake gasket, a cracked head, and so on.
It may also have an engine oil cooler that runs thru the radiator that could be leaking somehow.
Oil in the coolant is not a major issue by itself, but if it is coming from a gasket or crack it will get worse and cause other major problems over time.

If it looks milky in color, you could have a sludge problem. It occurs when coolant\water and oil mix.

High temp could be low coolant check your coolant level. Low oil-check for leaks, if no leaks then check for blue smoke out exhaust, if no blue smoke it could just be low. A vehicle will go through a quart of oil between oil changes, even a newer one.

White creamy thing on dipstick of mazda RX8

theres no water, theres no coolant, no cracked block, theres no problem, it is normal for an rx8 (for that matter a rotary engine) to have some white foam on the dipstick. all it is is oil being thrown about by the rotors all over the chambers and foaming up, there is nothing to worry about, its just oil. it is more noticeable in 04-05 models and if you so desire you can go to a mazda dealership and the will install baffles into your oil pan or a new one that is updated to help prevent this because they redesigned it after 05.

Whiteish gunk on oil dipstick

I also have an RX8 with this... problem the problem is that most of the people that are giving you these... expert solutions couldn't find their own *** with two hands and a map. Any way there is no problem your mazda has a rotary motor this whitish gunk is normal your car naturally burns oil and with the way the motor is designed this is normal. you should be more worried if you don't see this on your dipstick after running your car.

Water leaking from spark plugh

Water / coolant coming from a spark plug hole is not good. However since you have a rotary engine, the probale cause is an o-ring that has gone bad. The older rotary engines were notorious for the o-rings going out. The o-rings seal the combustion, oil and coolant passages. The engine will need to be resealed. Hope this helps.
