No antifreeze would explain the no heat and if the antifreeze leaked out, that might be related to the cloud of smoke. Also, if there is no liquid coolant in the engine, the temperature gauge will malfunction as you describe it. Although it is not exactly clear what has happened, and whether or not there are multiple issues (e.g., you mention lack of movement in gear, too) what I would recommend is you first request a coolant leak diagnostic. If a leak, or overheating or a water pump failure, is part of the issue the responding certified mechanic will resolve that as well as any other issues related to the overall breakdown.
