This will require pictures------Post some--you will get suggestions---This is a common problem--

However the older houses used balloon framing very frequently---so we need pictures to offer any real assistance.------Mike------

As mike said, a lot more info is needed. Can you get under the floor easily? If yes, then sistering the old joists may work depending how bad they are. In any case you will have to replace some or all of the floor.

Also the wall repair will depend mostly on the wall construction and extent of the damage. If you have mould, then the problem could get bigger!
