Unhappy Intake/ head removal

I was planning on take the intake off to inspect and clean the PCV system. Before getting much unbolted, somebody said that my problem could in fact be a blown head gasket. How much more work is that? This is my first Volvo and I am not used to
all the extra systems and hoses compared to my previous cars. My Volvo is a 1998 V70 with a turbo. I have already replaced the rear exhaust cam seal. Had an oil leak, which from what I have read, sounded like a PCV problem. I do not have the money
to take it to a shop to do the work, and I like to work on things myself, but fear that this may be too big of a job for me. I bought a Haynes manual to help but it sounds very complicated from what it sounds like. Need some suggestions.

Thanks!
