It looks like you'll be left with too thin a wall to fit inserts.
For $50, I'd walk away.

If you have access to or can TIG weld, it'd be easy to dig out the remaining bolt, build up the area and then drill/tap it again. If the rest of the head is in good shape, it might be worth pursuing.

That hole is for holding the valve cover down. It shouldn't see a lot of torque or stress, but the only way I'd make the purchase was if I was comfortable with the procedure Henry mentioned.

Also, make sure you get that surface completely free of oil before you start working on it.

You might also give this stuff a try if you can get some imported: HTS-2000 - https://www.ebay.com/i/132483473330

I'm guessing the cost of DHL is more than a head or repair for the one he was thinking about getting.
