I stretched the front of a nylon jacket while replacing the zipper. It is longer than the lining. What do I do now? Should I sew the zipper to the front and then hand stitch the lining to it? Help please

If you are sure   that the zipper fits the outside of the jacket then the zipper does not need to be replaced.
Obviously you stretched something out.
Then you can fit  the lining and stitch it by hand  turning edges inward.
The most important thing is that it hangs right and fits right.
