I did not see the part where you knew you had cast iron. Either have a plumber install a new flange using lead and oakum or try to find a "no-hub" flange which seals with a compression ring. The no hub one may not be the best choice if the outside of the pipe is also corroded.

We recently decided to replace the linoleum floor in the bathroom. Upon removal found the floor rotted due to the toilet leaking. Also found there to be no flange. Toilet mounted directly to wood. We purchased a plastic flange but it won't fit. The waste pipe is 4" but is corroded and won't alow the plastic flange to fit inside it. Also, if we ever get the flange to fit, it will not be level with the floor. The part where the bolts go in will be raised slightly above the floor. Is that okay? Or, do we have to cut the cast iron pipe. If so, how do we do that.
