Of course it does, it has full manual control (M), but may I suggest first trying "shutter priority" (Tv). This mode lets you set shutter speed up to 15 seconds, but it automatically sets the aperture to match the shutter speed that you set. Merely turn the mode dial to Tv, then use the right/left buttons to select the shutter speed.

Now before pressing the shutter button, may I also suggest that you use the camera's shutter delay timer to take the picture (this will eliminate any shake from you pressing the button). Just press the function button to bring up the menu. then find the timer setting (try 2 seconds).

Here's where you can download your camera's user manual if you want to read more on what your camera can do:

This is such a specific request, I'll assume you know what you are doing ..... the ccd sensor is quite a difficult part to change.

One thing you might consider is buying a reasonable secondhand one - again from eBay they are less than $50 ......

Finally, Canon had a recall on the A75 for bad sensor problems - I'm not sure if you qualify, but .....

I suspect your camera has a defective CCD which is quite common for the A75.   Canon is aware of the problem and has issued a recall for affected cameras.  I have had mine repaired under this recall.  Here is a link with some pictures which show what the problem looks like.
