The CPU takes in the air from the front side of the PC and blows the air out to the back. It works both ways. It's just like air conditioning for a house. Air has to come in first in order to go out. Usually from front through the back. So that us users don't feel the hot air of a CPU.

How do I remove and replace a CPU cooling fan on my Dell Dimension 2400

Make sure u can open the casing well to expose the interior parts without causing any damage. Then by close look at the processor area , that is where the heat sink is located. Normally the dell dimension 2400 has a green channel shaped structure that acts as a passage for the air that enters in and out for cooling the heat sink. It has a locking parts that slides into the casing back by slight pressing to the back of the casing just behind the processor area, be so observant to notice the locking parts. then the fan is just fixed behind that green " channel like" and its fixed on the rear side of the casing, 25275582-o0cuhlgwrl13okm3u3q5444d-5-0.jpg

The black screw on housing that holds the CPU fan broke and the fan is dislodged. Can I get a replacement?

I would go down to the nearest 'Mom and Pop' computer shop, and see if they have a compatible screw. Take the old one with you for comparison.
