find the siteID of the orphaned site in either the SharePoint_Config DB or the actual content DB. Try to run deletesite stsadm command with the force flag.

Regarding the features, technically you would have to find out whatever features/solutions you had installed in the farm. Reinstall them and then deactivate all related features everywhere they are used. Then uninstall them.

If you cannot figure out what solution package they ever belonged to you can create feature.xml files with nothing in there except the feature id and some description. Install those and then you will be able to uninstall the features. No warranty on that one.
