So my computer just died on me and I need it for school so more or less I was wondering could I use the 5+ somewhat broken laptops in my house to scrap together something that'll work? Obviously it wouldn't need to be the best it just needs to work for the meantime.

Nope, unless they are all the same model. Laptop components are not standardized so motherboard shapes, port locations, screen connections, keyboard, etc... don't match between brands and models most of the time.
