So I am changing the valve stem seals on 6.0. One of the valve guides broke off at the head. Also, that valve was bent a little. Is the valve guide a fix at home thing? Also, should I just be able to buy another valve and put in and done?

I would say NO.... the head needs to come off. The guide is part of the head casting... old guide needs to be bored out and replaced with a press in one....(the guides are inexpensive)...I replaced all my guides and valves when I did studs. U need to figure out why your valve bent, and make sure no piston damage occurred.
Good luck
