If the chain has just slipped of the best way get it back on is to physically lift it into place at the top of the chain ring (the cog where the pedals are).
Then turn the pedals in the direction you would usually pedal (you may have to lift the back wheel off the ground).
This ought to pull the chain back on and let you get back on the open road.

remove the coaster brake lever bolt. This is small bolt that holds the coaster brake lever to the left side chain stay. There will probably be a strap wrapped around the chain stay with bolt going through the strap and the lever. This usually requires a 10mm wrench (sometimes it is 8mm) for the nut and a Phillips or flat head screw driver (some times it's another 10mm bolt head).
The axle nuts are usually 15mm nuts. Loosen these (they usually don't need to be removed all the way) and push the wheel forward to put some slack in the chain. Lift the chain off the rear cog and you will be able to pull the wheel out of the drop outs.
To install, slide the wheel into the dropouts, put the chain back on the cog, pull back on the wheel and tighten the nuts finger tight. Reinstall the bolt through the coaster brake lever and then tighten the axle nuts, pull back on the wheel while tightening the nuts so the chain is tight. Then tighten up the coaster brake lever bolt. (if you tighten the axle nuts first, you won't be able to move the coaster brake lever into place to get the bolt in)
Only if it has a freewheel, it will make a slight clicking sound when pedaled backwards. The coaster brake models do not. If you pedal backwards and the cranks locks up tight after moving a few inches then it is a coaster brake bike. These also have a brake arm on the rear hub, attached to the frame.
Bike chains are slightly different determined by amount of cogs on rear sprocket. If you havent changed the chain, adjust the tension of chain.If tension is ok-sprocket would be damaged(teeth worn,slightly rounded)but if same prob on different gear, chain tension/incorrect size chain is problem. Hope this has been helpful..
are you trying to replace the sprockets? you can't get the nut off because it spins? just put the bike in gear and remove the front gear first, leave the chain on until after the nut is loose. also "make sure you flatten out the nut lock first".
I'm guessing this bike has a rear coaster brake. I really don't suggest overhauling a coaster brake hub and it is unlikely a diagram for your huffy exist but here is a link to a general coaster brake hub diagram. It should be very similar to what you are working on.
