bad cast iron pipes

I have a drain line from my sink that i have a dishwasher and a garbage disposal hooked to it. The line became plugged one day and I had the plumber come out and snake the line. He told me that he could only go a little ways into the cast iron pipe.Now I have a hole on the side of the clean out in the middle of it that has rusted through.Iwas wondering if maybe there is a collapsed line.I would also like to maybe replace the hole line with PVC under my basement floor and tie into the main line if this is possible.
