As far as your valves go, it all depends on how much play there is in
side-to side motion. If this play is not too bad, a hand-lap and new
valve stem seals would be it.

The cracks between the valves, as small as they appear in the photos,
all they need is to be gently peened closed with a round nosed punch.
