Need help with the positive battery mount

I actually have 2 questions here. Tonight my car wouldn't start .At one point it started but revved up and died. So I got my daughter to help turn the key so I could check some things.I checked for spark and got lots of spark.I then checked the timing belt and it was good.While cranking the engine it sounded like it wasn't hitting on all four cylinders compression wise.I then figured no gas to engine.I went and got starting fluid to see if it would pop off. squirted some in the throttle valve and told my daughter to try and start.She said everything is dead.She was right no lights and no spark.I took the cover off the battery and the postive cable is screwed up and parts are gone. I turn the postive cable. Car started right up and ran great. Could a loose cable cause the car not to start ?Seemed like it was turning over fast enough before?Now where do I get a cable end because it is so different or do I buy a whole cable from ford.What have others tried to fix this. thanks !!!
