In Page properties, the Index page is defaulting to 404 page and I can't seem to change this. This is of course causing issues with site being able to be searched, and I can't generate a sitemap.

You have probably deleted the index template. If you have a back up of the website on your server, you can restore it. If not, you can reinstall the theme you downloaded.

I think I may have accidentally clicked the 'substitute this page with the index page' button. I couldn't figure it out, so reinstalled the main files. All running good now ;-)

May be you have accidentally deleted the index file and thatswhy 404 broken link shows. Don't worry if you re upload the index file into server it will display the homepage.
