Default What to do? Main berring is shot

Ok I just found out it was the main berring that is shot what can be done about this I didnt have the specifics before but now I know from what Ive heard on here it would be better to just get a junkyard engine or a new engine and have a small shop put it in this would be the cheapest route from what Ive heard
Is there not a way to pull the engine take it apart and just replace the bearring or what could there be more damage done to engine from this being shot
ANy thoughts would be greatly appreciated
Thanks

Oh yeah and I have a 1994 SSEI if you were wondering

Installation of a crank kit can typically be done for about $500-$600 in parts. The engine has to come out and be disassembled, cleaned, and carefully put back together. This only repairs the crank, rod bearings, and main bearings. You cannot do a rebuild for anywhere near $500 in parts and shop services.
