SOURCE: Inner 'glass' of door
The inner glass can and should be replaced. It protects the metal mesh screen from getting dirty, which can cause it to be damaged and allow microwave leakage.

SOURCE: Broken microwave door glass
Be very careful with microwaves. I would not work on it myself. Technicians actually have a meter to measure for leaks after they put it back together. I would be surprised if you could get parts for it anyway. You risk life and limb if you get it wrong.

no, glues are no good in microwaves due to high temperatures, may give off toxic fumes etc. you need new door fittings which isnt easy to fit, take to approved dealer, he will also test for leakage out side the door.

No, that must be patched or replaced. It's critical.
The film protects the door screen from getting food, grease or moisture in it, which can lead to corrosion and arcing.
The screen prevents microwave energy leakage, which can cause arcing and fire.
If the bad spot is not too big, you can cut it away and clean it squeaky clean and patch it with clear packing tape.
If it's too bad to patch, you'll have to see if you can get new film, or if you need to order the inner door panel or whole door.
