    Can I need to necessarily replace a broken cable ... 

    I've been speaking English for almost 70 years and I have no idea what you are trying to ask. 

    Which cable are you asking about?

    It depends on which cable and where it is broken at!

    Of course mechanical ability also comes into play.

    If it is the parking brake (some times called an emergency brake) cable, it has to be fixed. If not legally you are driving an unsafe vehicle.

    Hood release cables are not a safety item. The cables that hold a convertible top in place (tension cable) are not a safety item. Throttle and clutch cables are not that expensive. A bit of a bear to do, but it is kind of hard to drive with a broken one.

    Can't you weld it? Dude, if you can't afford a new one, you can't afford to drive. Take the bus.

    If it's broken once it's likely to break again. Fit a new one.

    It depends on the cable, but its usually not cost efficient to repair a break. They' have to remove the outer insulation, detach the broken section, attach a new section and reinsulate it, and most cables you'd use in a modern home can be replaced for a few dollars.
