I need to do my annual re-boot of my macbook pro, but the disk drive has been busted for a while now, how do i wipe it and re-boot original OS?

Of course...this is NOT a necessary "annual" thing to do. But also (of course) it is your computer...so you can do whatever you want.
Regarding your question about the optical drive...well you could either replace the internal CD/DVD drive...or purchase an external drive like this:
OWC Value Line USB2.0/1.1 22X Super-MultiD... (VLU2SD22XLS) at OWC

I am sure there are ways to do this via FireWire target disk mode or something else, but it might get a little squirrelly. It definitely would not be a bad idea to get the CD/DVD drive replaced either way...
