Basilcly i have little knowledge of what happend myself,
ok just bought teh vehicle cheap today as a non runner, the vehicle has no oil in at all dipstick is bone dry as i thought was strange and got aa to collect to bring it home for me, he had a look said engine was sezied, i did think of filling with oil and towing trying to start it se what happens or is that a silly idea?
Very silly idea.
Dismantle the head and find out why it has seized. If the pistons have melted / warped then replace them.
Don't forget early 2.2's suffered from lubrication of the camchain. This was rectified quite quickly and oil nozzles were installed to direct more oil onto the chain and was done under warranty. However if your car is young and is one of them that has never seen a Vaux garage then the chain could be broken, in which case new valves, possibly new pistons, certainly new chain and oil feed nozzle.
Its a jam thing

Chances are that the cam bearing faces on the head will be fubared, as these are part of the head and not separate shells, so that will mean a new head for sarters.
I'd expect a fair bit of internal damage as Z22's run a very high oil pressure as standard to prevent wear - normally around 6-8 bar (90-115 psi) when warm
Either way you have to remove the engine that's already in the car - and if you open up the original engine and find that a fair few pits need replacing/machining then cost/time wise it's cheaper just to drop another S/H engine in fro the outset, and then sell off anything salvageable form the old one as parts to recoup some of the outlay.
I'd recommened replacing the timing chain (definately) and the clutch before puttingthe new engine back in too
