Any advice would be REALLY appreciated

Ok, I have a 92 with an H23. I don't know how many people have owned the car before me, but I know it has had it's fair share of damage and repairs. Some of the repairs were questionable, and some were done poorly. Anyway, I wanted to post a pic and some information to see if anyone would be able to provide any helpful advice and/or helpful tips. I purchased the car a few years ago, and have had two wrecks myself. One of the wrecks ripped the from bumper off completely. In the other wreck, it dented the hood severely, bent the steel front bumper down pretty far, and broke the driver's side headlight. I love this car and don't want to just give her up for a new car.... So I wanted to ask what steps I should take towards repairing the steel bumper , reattaching the front bumper, and if/how to straighten the hood out to the best it can be? It also drifts to the left really bad while driving. Also, after the second wreck, my power steering fluid started leaking everywhere. It is drawing air from somewhere because gets in the reservoir. It will not hold power steering fluid for long at all. I would fill it up to the proper mark (with Honda ps fluid), drive for 20 minutes, and would be 3/4 empty or more. I know this is a lot to, but any help on any of these issues would be awesome, and really appreciated.

Junkyard my man.

1) Roadkillcustoms.com for your local junkyards. Get your hood, ps pump, and bumper/bumper cover there.
2) Car-parts.com for used parts nationwide that your local ones don't have.
3) Stop crashing
4) Go to a frame/alignment shop to see why it pulls left. Could be one of many things.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Appreciate man. I have been checking my local junkyards, but no luck yet. They never have any 4th generation Preludes. I'll keep checking. I'm not sure the entire ps pump needs replacing, but I've never had this problem so idk... Thanks for taking the time to read my post and responding.
