    Welcome to Android Central.

    I believe that they are replaceable. How much skill and what specialist tools would be required, I don't know, but I should imagine it would be a) a lot of skill and b) some specialist tools.
    I wish you success!

    "Broken" as in torn out of the screen, no.

    Broken as in torn out of the connector, yes, but you'll need a pin puller for the connector and soldering equipment.

    Broken as in the middle of the cable somewhere, yes - you slip a piece of shrink tubing over one end of each broken wire, add enough wire from another cable so you don't shorten the cable, solder in the extra length of wire, slide the tubing over the joint and heat it to shrink it into place and insulate the solder joints.
