You probably bent a pushrod and weakened a few of your valve springs. Or it could be simple as a broken plug or damaged one.

I would advise to a micrometer to the muffler bearings and make sure they are not .034" out of spec, you must have overreved and knurled a few of the bearings. On Pg.14 of the Chilton manual will describe how to do this procedure properly.

Nope, internals are the crank, rods, pistons, and camshaft. Things that are held within the block. Not bolted to the block or on something bolted to the block. But maybe its just me.

Well I believe that the valvetrain is a part of the inside of an engine.

But really, is it important? :)

Push rods are notorious for bending under high rpms. Don't dog on it until you check them. Other wise you will kink a valve.;)
