    On a newer laptop the keyboards are usually quite easy to remove and install a new one. Do a search for "replacing the keyboard on a (e.g.) HP, Pavilion, Model 123456. You should easily find a video on how to do it. You can also go the the laptop manufacturers web site and go into the support section and look for the Maintenance manual for your laptop and it should tell you how to do it in that. New laptop replacement keyboards are usually under $30 and easy to install. Hope this helps.

    I would find it to be a big deal. This is an opinion question and that's my opinion.

    Depends on how much you care about your spelling.

    As others have suggested, just get a keyboard from a desktop computer, and plug it into one of its USB ports.

    Depends on what key you're talking about and how frequently you use it. Even then, you can use a USB or Bluetooth keyboard if the key is necessary.
