How to download Lion osx 10.7 on MacBook Pro osx 10.6.8? (Mid 2011/hard drive corrupt & dvd/cd won't mount) Any suggestions & recommendations welcomed

MacBook Pro OS X 10.6.8 Mid 2011 model Power Mac 5.3.

My hard drive is corrupt, missing Volumes, losing iTunes songs from imported CD'S left n' right. I tried to download Lion, but when I clicked on Buy Now, it went into my Cart, meaning no direct download?

I am hoping that with Lion OS X 10.7, it will not only repair hard drive issues, but also upgrade my MacBook Pro OS X 10.6.8 as well. I brought my Mac to a PC/Mac repair shop, the tech there, hmm, did not fix issues.

Also, I do not want to lose Software already installed on hard drive, as all my Adobe, Apple & complete software library was destroyed in 2013 by Hurricane Sandy (she took my house as well).

Any support, suggestions and or recommendations greatly appreciated.
Thank you!
