We have another DC, but it is the FSMO roles that look stuffed - am I
able simply to seize these roles somehow? Or does it require that I
seize them from a functional DC?

If you do not have a backup, nor a replicated server, then your SOL.
Reinstall. You just lost ALL you domain info. So far the official
party line.

(but...you could try to get a mostly identical machine, and swap the
disk, provided the hardware is not all to different it will boot, and
you will be saved)
