And, how did the objects actually end up going in completely opposite directions in order to end up in a head on collision. Meaning, the early solar system debris field had somehow a disk with objects travelling in two polar opposite directions. Forgetting there a basic direct that material end up circling the sun. Yes, object collide and rebound in every direction. But, how did two giant, already coalesced objects somehow end up going in completely opposite directions and end up colliding.
Improbable. This theory isn't new, nor is it right. No way it was a head on collision. Dang, I really hate the glancing blow theory, I had hoped to make this a better option to argue against. Nope. It's dumb

Let's start in the beginning. We have our sun. And around sun, there are planets which are orbiting the sun. All the planets, are going the same direction around the sun.
At the time of the "collision" there were already planets of various sizes. The "planet" that "collided" with our first earth, was about the size of mars. This means the planets were already basically formed and travelling in their approximate orbits.
My problem with the head on collision is that there was ONE Mars sized planet not obeying the traffic rules and was somehow flying around in the exact opposite direction. The scientist that worked on this problem have a problem explain how this Mars size planet was going the wrong way. It's not the glancing blow theory, it's the head-on theory.
Okay, you also asked how would volcanoes produce enough energy. First, let me say you are correct and the moon is travelling away from us. Charles Darwin's son tried to explain the moon, but the fact was that was that when you take his centrifugal force idea and do the math, the moon starts out- too far away from earth. Which is why we have scientists trying to figure out how it got to it's original starting point. It's too far away from Earth to have been flung there by inertia and spin.
So, you want to know how the volcanoes could throw material far enough out into space and not come back. Some did. Much of the material would come back. Not all. These were hydrogen explosions. Hydrogen. Nuclear. The Earth was acting very much like the sun. When the Sun has a Coronal Mass Ejection, much of the material is throw so forcefully it has escape velocity. But, still, some of that material doesn't escape.
I'm saying the volcanoes act very much like CMEs. The water and molten rock explode under pressure.
If humans can send a rocket into space with escape velocity, then why can't a giant (phreatic- the key is water) volcano.
Here's a good article about some moon studies.

I didn't make up the idea about the planets forming quickly and finding their orbits early on, I think that PBS Neil guy said it. All of our planets are following the basic laws of flying in the same direction. They are all on a plane of a disk.
But the question still remains, how did it get on a directly opposite path, on the plane, and hit the earth head on.
If you say it came from another solar system, then it sneaked passed Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, that asteroid belt and found, it exact opposite direction. Honestly, if came from somewhere else, it probably would have hit on angle.
As for my volcanoes, the nuclear part comes from the hydrogen. Hydrogen is the stuff of the sun. So, just like I said before, they hydrogen and the oxygen were fuel. If you put hydrogen under pressure, with enough heat, you'll get a nuclear reaction. You'll fission, not fusion, but both are powerful. A fission explosion of a great size would be powerful enough to propel molten magma beyond escape velocity.
Please just don't believe. and I bet , even if I was right, and even if I brought much evidence to bear, you'd just disagree anyway.
Many people think an asteroid formed the nearly perfect arc in the bay. Geologist did tests and found no evidence it was an impact, or collision. No shatter rock or rebound, yet....
