My Prelude timing belt skipped a few teeth, is there an easy fix?

So we removed the valve cover today and found that the 2 cams were aligned correct, but the crank was not, it is off i dont know how many teeth, but the marking isn't even visible in the inspection hole, I saw the marking when the engine was a little before TDC but once the cams aligned then it was gone. Anyways this skip caused our Prelude to make a loud knock noise, I've heard that this can bend valves. So my question..... Is there an easy way to set back the timing.... now hear me out, I know the belt needs to be replaced and all, but my thought is if there is a way i can correct the timing and see if there is still a valve knock or engine knock from the skipped timing, because then that would involve removing the head and possibly getting them machined, and to be honest if im at that point I would just assume pay to have the engine rebuilt, there is a guy in town that quoted us $800 to overhaul the engine.

So I literally just found I have an adjustable cam, is this good, bad? Can this make the skipped teeth easier to fix or offset?

^^That.

The timing assembly is the absolute LAST place you want to cut corners on.

Seriously.. if you end up in a situation where you need to buy rotors and pads to keep from killing people but can only afford brakes OR timing components....Screw you and your fellow drivers, you need timing components.
