Subject: Engine Crack or not?

I have a 1992 Saab 900 (2.1 Non-Turbo Auto) car with 67,000 mile that overheated. I started seeing white steamy smoke (thought to be antifreeze) that probably means a gasket seal "tore". But what if I'm getting antifreeze in the oil, (turning it light greenish brown) and over filling the max oil level. Is there a way this could be 2 or more gaskets, OR do you think it is an engine crack?? I plan to send it to a garage monday. I stopped driving as soon as it overheated and adding antifreeze didn't solve anything, but realized it just was "drinking" it. What did anyone do who had this kind of problem? And if it is an engine crack what can you do?? Thank You M. R. R.
