I bought a used engine with heads already removed. One of the 2 sleeves between block and head that head bolts slide though is crushed. What are their propose and how important to they be installed? I have not visited the dealer yet but it seems to be the only place to buy a replacement.

head gasket and small sleeve

They are made to locate the correct location for the head on the block. Pretty important

Just so you ask for the right part, they're called locating dowels. Possibly a decent parts house would have a selection to chose from. I doubt if they're a dealer only item. Worst case, it wouldn't be hard to make some from the right size tubing.
