If you want to get your phone back to its OOTB configuration, follow this post from above:

In short:
Start Odin (download from above)
Put your phone in USB debugging mode
Reboot into download mode with the SDK ("adb reboot download")
You should see the yellow triangle and "Do not Turn Off Target!" on your phone
Odin should see the phone now
Click start
Wait patiently and Do Not Panic

Assuming you just want to reinstall GTalk, you'd have to determine if it's just a single APK file (or if there are support files) and you'd need to sideload it (either via root or the sideloader wonder machine app).

Since you're also having some odd market issue, I'd be very inclined to say get back to a fresh start using Odin. Anything you do from here forward if your phone is slightly goofed up could just cause way more issues moving forward.
Hanging tough: Samsung Captivate w/ Custom ROM
Returned: Motorola Atrix
Cautiously Optimistic: Samsung Galaxy S II
