Yikes, that looks dangerous..... is that beam on the right being held up by a piece of twine? I would get a handyman who knows framing to fix that and make sure he uses screws.... not nails.
You are going to have to borrow or rent house jacks to support the corner of the deck where that footing is. You will need posts or 2x4's nailed together to use with the jacks to take the weight off that post. Then you need to dig around the footing to remove and replace it.
I agree you need to apply a jack to work with that corner. You can then use a diamond pier (easy to install; a bit expensive but you only need one). Cut the post to fit the Diamond Pier and the post holder (that you need to put on top of the footing).
As far as the upper part where the deck is coming apart, you will need to probably use brackets to hold it square (home improvement stores have these items). Make sure you use decking screws, and structural screws that can handle the shear force of the weight of the deck and people.
I would check the beam next to the house and see how it was attached. You may need to use something like tapcons to reinforce the attachment (unless it was bolted on securely). I would also check each post and reinforce those connections (based on the photo it seems they were not attached correctly).
Sorry, that's a lost cause Not sure what's going on here...looks like Jenga to me.
