Drivers door will not open from inside or out

If you,ve managed to gain access to the lock mechanism the only thing you can do is to try to dismantle it from inside the door. You may have to destroy it to get it apart but you can then move the latch to open the door. Then remove rest of lock mechanism and replace. You should be able to pick one up from a car breaker for approx £10

If you need to get a door Id suggest trying a local wrecking yard. If you can try to get the whole hinge assembly and latch as it sounds like there is a possibility that the hinge on your current door is worn out or the latch mechanism is worn. If you are lucky you may even get one that is the same color as your current vehilce color.

I would say that you can most likely weld the torn metal around the latch. Be sure to protect or remove all wireing, upolstery and any thing else that may melt, burn or catch fire due to high tempatures. I would suggest TIG welding if you know someone or a shop that can do it but you are more likely to find a MIG welder which should do a decent job as well.

F150 third door top lock won't release

there's a cable that runs from the door mech up to the top latch, need to pull down on this cable to release the top latch. Only way I could pull down enough to release was through the hole just left of the opening for the mech...cable is attached to the door frame with plastic tie wrap...pop this out so the cable is free in there and then just pry down with a screwdriver...make sure your pulling the handle at the same time. Once the door is open, it's easy to see what happening, most likely the cable is stretched out too much. I just ordered the part from Ford, the cable and top latch come as one part...about $60.
