This is the Apple-land guide on recovering an working installation...

But be aware that likely you will lose all of your personal files in the process (unless I'm mistaken),

If possible - even with what sounds to be a crippled installation - try and copy all your personal "stuff" to external storage; typically dvd but an external hard drive too if possible. Verify/check the copies are OK as well before proceeding with any software rebuilds. And in the future regularly have copies updated of your "stuff" elsewhere - for obvious reasons...

Also if you have had Time Machine running for a while, perhaps consider a restore that way to an earlier and working state?

And when you do have it all running OK again, make your own image of the system; and keep safe and handy incase of future need to restore it? I have used Carbon Copy top create images for both of my Mac systems; simple enuff to use...
