valve cover help

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

alright so i saw a diy on tcc on painting your valve cover and i thought since my car is in storage in my garage and i wont be driving it and my valve cover looks like crap why not!!

so i started by trying to remove the 2 10mm nuts on the bottome of the valve ccover closest to bumper.

For those who dont know me i am mechanically handicapped and just straight up bad at it. and as a result to that i ended up breaking those 2 bolts

so my question are
1) how stupid am i out of 10? lol
2) how bad is the damage? like to replace those bolts.
3)how do i replace those bolts?
4) to get them can i just go to home depot and/or cappy tire
5) how do i properly remove them without breaking anything else

i attached some pictures to show you my stupidity....
i should have stopped after breaking the first one. lol
