That's happened to mine today, I had to lift the left plastic square and just tap the spare metal bit to select things, I think you can buy replacement parts, but a friend of mine thinks you have to buy the whole touchpad.

That can be tricky, but I have done it taking a really small flat head precission screwdriver and going along the edges. Just be go slow and careful. Another option would be to just get a USB mouse to hook to your laptop.
It is unfortunate to know about that. However as you told that the left click button of the touch pad for you acer laptop has broken or damged, the only way to get it resolved is to get the laptop serviced. As the laptop touch pad and keypad is integrated directly with the mother board it is not possible to fix just that paricular button. The pad must be replaced. Get in touch with the acer technical support , they will replace the pad for you.
Try uninstalling the drivers for the mouse from the device manager, the do a hardware search, it will find the device and automatically reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't work, then the synaptic touch pad is shot and needs replaced.
