Hope you didn't order all this stuff.

First of all, I assume you are staying with the V6. Nothing wrong with that.
If that is not the plan, then you're more on track with appropriate mods.

Eddie is right. That sensor is held on with a single bolt. Remove the bolt, pull it out.
There is an o-ring on the sensor, and that is likely leaking, if the leak is from there.

T-stat housing? that would cost more than $20! A t-stat maybe they'd charge $20 for.

That's not preventing the fan from running when it needs to, though.

sounds like a ring or pinion gear issue. Has the car been raced? Any accidents or contact with a curb? Stock gears or aftermarket gears?
Those things don't usually just develop, something causes it.
