SOURCE: I cant open my laptop
first, you need a service manual in order to completely open your laptop. The service manual has diagrams and directions, that's why it is recommended. It is also from Dell, the manufacturer, so the directions are accurate.
Click on the link below to have access to the service manual from dell the manufacturer.
When the link opens, you will find a list of topics in blue. Click anyone regarding what you want. For example, since you want to work on the fan, click 'fan' and you will find directions on how to remove and replace the fan.
According to your second question, yes, you can use another fan as long as it fits and as long as it's the same. It doesn't necessarily have to be from dell.
Have the fan removed first, then use it as a sample to get something similar. You can go to any computer/laptop parts/accessories store within your vicinity/area for a fan replacement.
I hope the above is clear. If it's not clear to you, please let me know for further direction.
