Default could this cause my overheating?

this water never weep or make noise, is the water pump still ok?

i broke a one screw while removing this, would that cause a leak?

i threw a bunch of silicone around it, i just hope it will hold

Umm, unless I'm seeing this the wrong way, it looks like the impeller has no blades on it anymore. If that's the case, then it certainly would be the cause. If the water isn't circulating, it will just boil.

Yeah, the old impeller was toast. There was noting left to move the coolant.

The broken bolt/screw could be a problem. It might not leak while sitting there static but turn into a geyser after the system pressurizes. I would get that fixed.
