Unfortunately, this does not sound good. It is a good thing to clean the inside of a computer if it's dusty, but the bent pins and cracked motherboard socket would definitely be the culprit in this instance.
Care is always needed when dealing with the insides of a computer case - if in doubt, always make sure to get advice before trying anything.
Nonetheless, I should think a new motherboard and CPU should do the trick.

It may be that the motherboard is the only part needing replacement, and the CPU itself is okay. To test this theory, you would need to put your CPU into another known-good working motherboard, and see if that other computer boots up and runs properly.
If your CPU cannot run in another motherboard, then both would need to be changed.
If you are unable to test this out, you may be able to find a local PC repair shop who should be able to do it for you, for a small fee.
