You bought the wrong switch. Just because it looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside(switch). I don't know if you have a bad motor but it is a cheap low-end fan only made for Home Depot!
Vibrations and excessive play could be caused by one of two or both bearings in the gear housing or the spiral bevel gears. Armature bearings can cause vibrations but usually don't show up as play at the spindle. Also, if the vibration is really bad, you could have several fan blades broke off one side of the armature fan throwing off the balance.
A three way switch has 3 terminals, these for floor fans operate by a rotary switch but can be adapted to use any 120V Rotary toggle or rocker type switch. technically your compartment (or room provided will determine which to use). I'd suggest you replace it with one like the one that no longer works. The one good thing about fans the direction they rotate in is already determined, and with a/c current it will work even if you connect it up wrong! If it work's then fine don't over think it
If you can't find a replacement plastic foot. You should be able to find rubber feet at a local Radio Shack. Replace the plastic feet with rubber feet. It will do the same. You may be able to find self-adhesive feet.
If the chain broke from inside the fan you will need a new switch $6 at any home improvement store and if its just the chain links you can buy a another replacement one. Make sure you tell them which switch is broken, fan or light so you get the right one and how many speeds if its the fan
