That is what removes the heat from the hot gas, if bent or pluged, it will make the system work a lot harder. Just take a knife and straighten them back, or go to a supplyhouse for ac and ask for a coil fin comb to straighten back out fins on a coil!

2001 chevy cavalier rear ended truck with hitch, which went through my bumper and bent some things along with puncturing my radiator

The bars are likely part of what is called your core support. They are structural items needed to maintain the dimensions of the fit of the rest of the front end parts.

Dometic rooftop ac not getting cold

Could be any number of thing.
Things you can check yourself, get on the roof and see if the vents at the back of the roof unit are clogged with dirt or if the fins on the condensor ( behind the cover) are bent. If so clean the vents and use a comb to straiten the vents so air can flow. You can wash this out with a garden hose.
If that doesn't help and the unit is running the next stop is at a garage or camper store to see if the refrigerant level it low and if so why.
Please be aware the refrigerant should not leak out if it is leaking there is a reason and while recharging the a/c will help for a while it is only a temporary remedy.

The forks usually bend well before the frame.
Take the forks off the bike and turn the chrome part in the fork leg and you will soon see if they are bent.
If they are only slightly bent a dial gauge will help.
Dont even think about having them straightened, get new ones

Radiator Protector installation issue

Normally at the end of the protector the rad grate is slightly bent to hold it in. If you bend them straight and slide them out the back this should work.

Bent A-Arm on a 1991 Chevy S10$???

I would guess $500 - $1500 to do this job depending on how much damage was done when the arm was bent.

"SMALL OIL AND TRANSMISSION LEAK AND THE RADIATOR LEAKS OUT SLOWLY." -- the radiator leak could get bad enough to require repair.

I think $400 obo is an okay price, can't get much lower for a vehicle that will get you to the store and back.
