The bolts that hold the muffler to the manifold have broken off. My usual technique would be to weld a nut to the broken bold. My concern is that when welding I will be putting a lot of heat in a small area , any chance the casting might break?

I think that the candle wax on the hot bolt would work

I've done it many times with no problems. Weld a washer on let it cool to the point you can touch it then weld on a nut. Done that on my B and C heads where the thermostat bolts break and that area is thin

This is not in the head, it is in the manifold, does that make a difference in your answer?

No I'd still do it the same way other then the fact being the manifold it will be tougher to get it to free up. I would pour some ATF on it before welding and then after welding but not when it is super hot but yet still warm
