What you describe may be congealed antifreeze due to a blown cylinder head gasket.

it should be all good with a new head new head gasket and a few oil changes right?

It's a gamble; depending on how much the engine was ran with a bad gasket. Antifreeze should float to the surface of the oil in the oil pan.
Try it and see what happens.
Good luck, WWR.
