First Apple doesn't offer replacement MagSafe cords. Anything you find are used cords that someone cut off a dead charger.
 
So that leaves the question on how you plan to spice the cord onto the adapter. You could cut the case and swap out the cord that way or splicing it in-line. I don't like either method as both leaves things in a weaker state than a factory unit. You see the case can't really be re-glued reliably so you put your self at risk from the high voltages and the risk of fire. Altering the cord with a splice puts your system at risk if you misfiremiswire or if the line shorts out.

So fixing the MagSafe charger is a no-go in my book as you are more likely going to damage something which would be more expensive!
 
As to the cheap knockoffs: People and systems are been hurt by them. A few people burnt and a few fires started, I had heard someone was killed but I never was able to verify that. Which is why the cord was cut off as they can't legally sell the MagSafe units in a working state.
 
Now lets look at your real problem here. Are you sure the MageSafe unit is bad? what is the MagSafe LED showing you when you plug it in?

Lastly you can't swap out the older MagSafe DC-In board to the newer MagSafe2 version the parts are not interchangeable.
