You can try it, you will know if it is leaking... When you get the other bolt, snug them up two at a time to keep the flange straight..

Yeah you will see condensation leaking out of there if there is a leak.

Keep an eye on it.

I would not let that go. You need both bolts to prevent an exhaust leak and from potentially burning up a valve. Next time don't superman tighten everything. Tighter is not always better. I have a buddy who swears he's not over-tightening things but he just can't help himself. I make him use a torque wrench on everything with a torque value. He was torque down the caliper bolts (22ft/lbs) and goes, "Is that all!?" after he hit 22ft/lbs. I just laughed at him. Some people truely don't know thier own strenght.

how can you break those bolts in half? you're underestimating your own strength, no need for tighten it down like you won't ever take them off again, for your sakes i hope there's enough bolt left protruding out of the thread.

use a 1/4" drive socket/handle next time.
