I'll ask another friend, whose competent with an iron, and see what
he's got to say on the matter. The first friend I asked thought that
the socket was soldered to the main board, thus making it
difficult/impossible to repair.

It's not the hardest job in the world, and unless you have caused
problems, it is gonna be cheap. I don't know if you can replace the
socket, but as a worst case you will be able to get SOMETHING to fit
Of course, the real dilemma is your lack of ocular sensory aparatus.
would guess that if you explain your predicament you should be able to
pretty much anyone with some solderng skill to help.
