It would probably be a little easier to put the rings in the engine while the engine is still off the frame.

Sorry to hear about the monster, but the good nes is you have another engine on standby. I think I would run a compression test n the new engine you may just need to replace the valve seals. but never the less I think while it was frame off I would go ahead and freshen up the engine a bit, eg new piston and rings if the cylinder walls look clean and smooth you may get by with a rering?
you other engine sounds like you might have lost the oil pump and it siezed up the crank bearings and snapped the connecting rod.
We are here if you need any assistance good luck. let Jon know I'm sorry about the loss, I know it really dissappoints young children.
