Main question, "Will I have to replace the catalytic converter if I can't find another donut type exhaust manifold that fits mine?"

My 2 bolt, donut manifold just cracked, and I'm only finding the 4 bolt ones online.

I just went through almost this exact repair about 3 months or so ago. Take the manifold off and take it to a welding shop/fabricator and see if they can weld it back together. Cost me $17.
