Do you need the special BMW service tools to remove the head or just to reassemble? And can anyone recommend a place that rents out the tools for reinstallation?

This DIY mentions a guy who has them, you might search around. I'm sure someone out there has them, and rents them. Pretty sure they're just for cam/VANOS timing upon reassembly.

You don't necessarily need another engine, but if the block is warped, it would likely be cheaper.
