At first I though it was just a bad motor mount. But when i removed the mount, I realized one of the bolts that holds the mount to the motor had broke off inside of the block. So do i go about fixing this? The only way I can see to do this is by buying a bolt extractor kit. I already have a new bolt kit and mount. Im just wondering what would be the best way to get that bolt out of the block?

Take a center punch, mark the center of the broken bolt (on The Block) next place a drill bit on that mark and drill all the way through. You should start off with a small bit and drill a second hole with a larger bit. the idea is to drill as large a hole as you can so you can use a larger easy out to avoid breaking them.

start with a small Drill bit and work your way up to the next size. It sould come out.

worst case , if that doesn't work or your off cent a bit, increase the drill bit size till you get to the threads and run a tap to clean them up.
