JB Weld will cost more to do than new joists. A 14 foot run will cause lots of bounce, and you may hold down the costs by putting osb on both sides glued , nailed ,and straight on top. Your killing yourself worrying about ups and down in the floor joists,If you just have to ......buy an electric planer. Use a large size caulking gun so buy the big tubes of construction glue.Slightyly jack up the floor/ceiling from below while doing all this. You may do a test sample on a supported 2x8 outside or where ever. With a sister joist ,and with 1/2 osb on both sides ,and stand on it,and check with a chalk line snapped. To fill any gaps in the tops of joists ,use sawdust and glue mixed.

A living room full of jacks is not what I had in mind.
