You should replace the whole keyboard. I am guessing you wore the letters off of the keys. It is easy to replace and you don't have to worry about snapping off the key holds. If you are really attached to this keyboard for some reason you can find new keys at

Keyboard typing wrong letters

Your keyboard is not "typing wrong letters", you have a stuck key. The key is shorting out and is stuck on the letter W. Usually caused by dirt/dust/spills on the keyboard jamming the key so it can't release. Things to try in order of difficulty:
>Vacuum cleaner with brush attachment, vac the keys.
>Paper towel moistened lightly rubbed on the 4 sides of the W key; use a knife blade to gently work down into the edges.
>Soft toothbrush, lightly dampened with water, work the bristles all
all around the edges of the W key. After that do step 2 with a dry
dry paper towel.
>Take the keyboard apart; usually several tiny screws on the rear/sides. CAREFULLY remove the top. You may have to turn the board over, lie on its face to do this. Do not knock the letters out of order or you will have a headache placing them back in proper order! Clear whatever it blocking the W and replace the cover.
If none of the above works the keyboard has failed, needs to be replaced.

What is the work of insert key of keyboard.

The insert key is used to toggle between overtype mode and insert mode while typing.

In overtype mode, any letters typed will replace those infront of the cursor.
In insert mode, any letters typed will be inserted where the cursor is. (Useful for if you miss a letter or word out)

The letters are rubbing off the keys. To an experienced typist, my wife, this isn't a big deal but for me it's a huge hassle. Do they make replacement keys? This is the 2nd keyboard this has happened to.

Sounds like your keys are sticking together. Pop the affected keys off with a flat tip screw driver and remove any debris. If there is something sticky, remove with Q-Tip soaked in rubbing alcohol. Then replace keys.

Some letters can't be typed

You need to replace the whole keyboard since the 4 letters is not working at all. You cannot change only 4 letter keys from your laptop.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.
