Finding brand specific replacement parts in stock for a 20+ yo faucet without a Mod.# is quite the task, implying that you would have to do a side by side compareson/inspection. If in fact that part is not obsolete.
Maybe you should consider replacing the entire faucet.

There is a small allen screw in the base of the handle- the part the stem screws into to turn the water to the on position. If you have lost the one for your handle call moen at 1-800-289-6636 in the US. Their hours are Mon-Fri 8-8 EST and Sat 8-18:30 or follow this link MOEN. In Canada 1-800-465-6130 and hours are Mon-Fri 7:30-17:00 EST.

Monique, I really do not have the real answer to why the acryllic ones break but there are many factors that contribute to it such as torque placed on it at the connection point with the stem and repeatred pushing and pulling on the handle due to normal use. The handles also contain an oil base in them and when that oil dissipates the handle becomes more brittle and less flexible. The other reason is simple physics. The force placed on the handle is all focused at the point where the stem contacts the handle and the screw attaches it to the stem.
As for installing your new faucet the only suggestion i would make is to make sure to use a thread sealant like Rectorseal. It is a paste like substance that comes in a can with a brush attached to the inside of the lid - you do not need alot of this placed on the thread just a thin coat as the directions imply or you will have a mess. Also if you have metal supply lines you may need new ones as the length needed may have bgecome greater. I recommend using the gray poly supplies as they are easy to cut to length.
Other than that it is a real simple process. Just remember the position you want the new pull up handle to be at to stop the sink as you may have it in a position that will not allow total closure.
Thanks for using Fix Ya and good luck.

If you are dealing with the type of Moen faucet I think you are, what you need to do is remove the pop-up rod. do this by loosening the locking bolt on the linkage under the sink and pulling the rod out from the top. Once the rod is out you will need to find the correct size allen wrench which goes into the center hole. there is a mounting bolt in there that needs to be unscrewed. Easy when you know how.

You need to replace the stem. This will not cost you a dime; call MOEN and tell them the issue, with the model number, and they will send the replacement part. Many people don't know that MOEN is guaranteed for life (to the original owner)......another words, say you are the original owner :) They will not ask any questions. Good luck! PS Also works on any MOEN faucets you may have.
