This is not an question that can answered in this's too involved and takes mechanical skills. I know these cars have always had oil leaks, and was a constant problem. Take it to a good tech for inspection or repair.

Just change oil last month and still warning for change oil and overheat with a lot of coolant

sounds like a head gasket issue, was the oil discoloured white in colour, bear in mind heat is caused by friction overheating will cause damage and possibly engine seizure.. which very expensive. unfortunatly a head gaket replacment is usually not cheap either as damage tothe metal also usually occurs when the gaket leaks.

I need to replace the oil pan in a 2001 dodge neon. Is this a DYI job??

Do you need to replace the oil pan it self or just the oil pan seal? This can been a DYI job, depending on your experience working with cars. You will need a your basic tools. (Jack Stands, Jack, Oil Container, wrenches and sockets, new oil and filter.) The first thing you will need to do is drain the oil. This is a good time to change your oil since you will be taking the oil pan completely off.
Steps to removing oil pan
1) Set car on jack stands or ramps in order to work under the car. (Be Safe, Be Smart!)
2) You will need a wrench or socket to remove oil drain plug and drain the oil out of the car
-This is a good time to change your oil, so replace oil filter as well.
3) Once the oil is drained you can take of the oil pan off. Most oil pans are just bolted. Not to hard to take of.
4) Once off this is a good time to clean the oil pan if your just replacing the gasket. Do not use lubricant cleaners like wd-40. Brake cleaner has worked for me, you can also ask your local auto shop or autozone for a good cleaner.
5)Replace the oil pan with new gasket making sure there are no tears in gasket and it sits well between the oil pan and engine block. (Make sure there is nothing in the oil pan as well that could cause harm)
6) once you replaced the oil pan its just as simple as putting oil back into your car like you are changing your oil.

Missing Oil????

Sounds like a broken oil ring and your burning it. If so you can bet the converter is already shot.

Have a Cylinder Leak Down Test ,done ,to determine the engine,integrity. Also look at the exhaust gas emissions with an analyzer. Pull the spark plugs,that will tell you which cyl is oil fouled

93 2wd st/wagon ,head gaket going,,Is it ok to drive the car 500ks by tightning the head down ,just to bring the car back home for gasket replacement.

It isn't recommended, but you should be able to do it. First of all since you said the head gasket is going I assume the engine runs half way decent. Also tightening the head may help a little but not much. Are you sure the head gasket is blown? Because you could also have a cracked cylinder head or engine block. If coolant is getting into the oil, the oil will lose its ability to lubricate the engine. If coolant is getting into the oil I would recommend taking along with you everything you need to do an oil change. And do an oil change every 100ks (I'm assuming kilometers). I won't need to change the oil filter, just the oil. You would want to bring the proper wrench for the drain plug, an oil pan, a funnel, a container to hold used oil, and of coarse the new oil. This may seem like a headache but if you don't and the engine seizes up half way home due to lack of lubrication, you can imagine what kind of headache that will be. Also if the head gasket is "going", it might go completely during the trip and the engine wont be able run, especially if its blown between two adjacent cylinders which is where they usually blow.

Oil pan gasket replacement

It shouldn't be hard on that car as the oil pan is exposed. Unplug the oil plug and drain the oil. Then unbolt the oil pan, clean off the old gasket and replace. Make sure you scrape both the pan and the block clean thoroughly and then bolt back up. Don't forgot to replug the drain plug.
