I have a genuine Nintendo GC controller with a broken grey joystick. If I get the correct security screwdriver, can a new replacement joystick be purchased and installed? And is the joystick the same as the N64 joystick?

You can either replace the joystick controller module if you are handy with soldering, or you can send/take it to a repair shop and they will do it. Those are the only two ways to fixing a loose gamecube controller.
The Nintendo 64 was probably the first system to introduce the Analog Joystick. The joystick unfortunately does wear out after a while. I have seen repair sticks available on the internet, but that would require opening your N64 controller to replace this part. OR you can simply buy a new controller. The following website sells them for around $17 free shipping:
the joystick is worn and isnt returning to the center as it originally would, it happens to all controllers over time, the only way to fix it is to replace the joystick but it would be easier to just buy a new controller
You can buy a new plastic housing for your DS lite on many different sites. Some are great quality. If the DS still works (despite the broken hinge) it makes sense to replace the housing.
You should be able to find enough videos on youtube to learn how to disassembe the DS and not do any harm. Make sure that you buy a tri-wing screwdriver (also called a nintendo screwdriver).
This is simple. Just open up the GC controller by unscrewing the screws on the back. When you get to the front, take the buttons out and clean them. If it still doesn't work, that means your button pad is torn and you will have to buy a new controller.
I've played that game before and there is a cheat to make it grey if you beat easy mode. I don't really get the point of the cheat but that's what it does. Maybe it's just a glitch. Sorry if that was irrevelant. I'm pretty sure that would just be the game itself.
