Look at the inside of the door directly behind the door handle. There should be a hole about 15 mm wide.
Just enough to get a small socket through.
Make sure the window is up.

i started by removing ashtray and the screw underneath. it would be easier to remove rear seat as access is not so good to move around. wind window down, then carefully pull from top of trim, it should come away fairly easy. the trim is held on by push in clips but you need to careful as they break easy. behind the inside door handle is a plastic backing plate which i found easier to remove first. now the outside handle can be undone and i simply pulled the cable and the door opened. the cable was broken where it joins the handle so a new cable is needed.

I seriously doubt that supergluing or even epoxying a handle back will hold at all, or hold for more then few days.
I would only suggest doing the replacement yourself if you familiar with this type of work, or has the aptitude to figure out how to do it, and have the right tools because it is NOT trivial and a number of things can be done wrong, broken or scratched.
The handle itself cannot be replaced. The outside door handle assembly (which includes the handle, the bezel with all associated springs, plastic and metal hardware) has to be replaced. Besides junkyards, which is a long shot for number of reasons, the only place where the handle assembly can be bought is the dealer. And these handle assemblies are not cheap ether. The driver side handle on my 2002 Altima broke first. I paid $60.23+tax, and they had to order it. BEFORE anyone goes to the dealer I suggest to call first, and ask them if they have it in stock. Since door handles are sold painted they will ask you for your car's VIN number so that they match the paint color.
After you pick it up, the replacement will take about an hour (if you know what you doing). The inside door panel has to be removed, it is held in place by the inside door handle and the panel is attached by a number of clips, the handle assembly is attached to the door by three bolts, to remove which you will need a socket with extension. You will also need a good flashlight so you see what you are doing.
If you are familiar how to do this type of work and plan to keep the car for a while I strongly suggest buying a factory service manual on a CD (I bought mine on eBay for under $10). It is worth its price 1000s of times over, and makes almost ALL repair work SOOO much easier.

You need a Torx head screwdriver T25. Open the door and on the side of the door is a small black grommet, remove grommet, inside is the torx screw you need to loosen for the lock mechanism to move. you dont need to remove the screw just loosen enough to move the lock assembly around. Once loose enough, install the door handle and tighten lock assembly back and put grommet back.
Here is a picture if you need a bit of visual clues.
