Hello - this problem seems to have multiple problem sources. Whether it was the first failure or the second, the fan motor resistor pack is probably fried - given only the "max" fan speed works, and needs to be replaced. It does not go through the resistor pack. The heater control valve, which regulates hot water into the heater core would not appear to be working either. Whether that is because of a bad heater control, or a bad valve will require further diagnosis with a voltmeter. I would recommend a thorough diagnosis of the heater system performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
