Can't help much on this since you tried to explain everything in title, but it does not show fully.

Guitar tuning peg seems like it might be broken it will tighten the string to a certain point then it clicks and its completely loose again...I'm new to guitar so I don't know If this is normal

It seems like you wound and tightened your string on the tuning peg loosley. Try wounding the string at least 4-5 times around the peg after you pass the wire though it and then after winding pass it through the hole again. Tighten well.
If that doesn't work your peg might be broken, but looking at it on the video seems that it's not, even though you can't see it clearly.
Try tightening the screws on the peg, since there's a lot of tension on the highest string and it might cause the peg to click back because the tension is too high and it's loose.

Broken sitar tuning peg

by now I hope you've bought or made a new peg. with any tension on it, the splintered wood, broken at an angle, won't hold long enough to tune the string. either make one out of a dowel rod, with the tapered end sanded to fit tightly, or use a brand new one made of plastic.

My neck of the guitar is broken. Please suggest a poosible way to repair this. Guitar is Samick Avion AV 3.

This is very serious as a broken neck means a lot to the guitar. It depends on the section broken and if the fret is also damaged.
Since the neck needs to be quite strong as the strings are tightened and must not in any way bend or be soft-- as the TUNING WILL KEEP ON CHANGING- the neck must be wedged back and then maybe the use of a counter steel reinforcement might be needed.
It is best to get this done professionally , if you intend to get this guitar to retain the quality.

Finding a broken one that still looks good. Need a real cheap one for prop.

Go to a local Luthier or take sample to a guitar shop. If you have the broken one, measure the diameter to get an exact diameter replacement.

The string that controls the volume pot has broken

Replace the string. Possible sources are "dial cord" used in older radios to move the dial pointer... Find it online.

Another source might be braided fishing line.

One string broken, how to refit it?

Sorry Dude
If you can not replace a broken string, then you need a few lessons from a friend.Find a pal to jam with.
It sounds like you broke your E string. Take it down to the local music shop. Buy a new string and ask the guy to put it on for you. Offer them a tip, its worth it.I could tell you. But you need the string so ask for assistance and see it in 3D. Keep on playing DFD
