Tile roof questions/repairs help please


Hey,
3x year old house in south florida, put it in a new barrell tile S tile roof 5 years ago and now we have a few cracked tile. I believe they are clay tiles terra cotta in color, i want to fix the cracked tiles. all the cracked tiles are corner or edge barrel tiles, one tile will need to be cut to replace the current broken one. My question are what do i use to hold the tiles down to the roof? black roof cemet that comes in a tube like caulk or roof tile cement you have to mix. also one tile is cracked straight through the tile but still in place is there a way i can reinforce this tile instead of prying it out and replacing? Once all the repairs are done i want to pressure wash the tiles becuz they are dirty i have a 100Foot hose so i dont need to drag the machine on the roof, also is there something i use to seal the tile after i wash to keep it looking clean? I can upload some pictures in a couple days my digital was borrowed by a friend, All advice is greatly appreciate. any other information needed please ask ill check this post often, i wanna fix the problem in the next 3-5days.

Replace any cracked or broken tile.
The tiles may have mortar holding them down.

Cracked broken tiles have been replaced, now can a clay tile roof be painted? pros/cons to painting or pressure washing the tile roof? Thanks for any advice.
