Sheared off wheel nuts / hub relacement

Hi all,

I'm after shearing off two front wheel bolts on my 2000 kangoo.
(My own fault for overtightening with a massive tire iron)
I've had no luck trying to drill out the bolts, so my current plan is to wait for it to stop raining, take off the brake rotor and try to get a vise grips on the broken stubs.

Anyway, my question is, if I can't remove the broken bolts, do I need to replace the hub?
And if I need to replace the hub, do I need a new bearing as well?
I don't want to spend a lot of cash on it since the car's 90% rust anyway.

Thanks for your help,
Currently in Gar's garage:
2000 Renault Kangoo 1.4l
