Hi. Welcome to chat! My name is ***** ***** I am currently a factory dealer auto mechanic. I will attempt to assist you with your concern today.
The dealer does have all the diagnostic equipment needed. But if the engine will not turn over by hand then there is a very good chance that the motor is seized. Although it could not hurt for a second opinion to have a dealer take a look at it. You are not obligated to fix it, even after the dealer looks at it.

No problem. Hope you and your family are all ok. And no. The engine should turn manually all the time. If your fuel level sensor is incorrect then the vehicle can run out of fuel even if the gauge is showing some in the tank.
