Welcome, indeed! It sounds as if the timing belt slipped, thus putting the valves and pistons on a collision course. I believe you will need to pull the head to determine the extent of the damage. Then, in addition to replacing the valve train, and perhaps a piston or two, you will need a new timing belt, plus pullies, and a water pump while you are in the neighborhood. Good luck.
