Sadly the hinge pin is damaged and not repairable.
 
This issue here is what is your skills and how much things cost.
 
Yes, you can replace the keyboard unit alone Vs the whole upper case. But its quite a bit of work and you do need to be careful as you could end up with a mess.
 
You could also go to an Apple store and pay the bench fee plus the parts cost and have the complete upper case replaced while it's the most expensive option it also removes the risk of your lack of skills.
 
The last option here is to replace the upper case assembly your self. Here you could save some money getting a refurbished part (used) and do the work your self while its still quite a bit of work its a lot less than replacing the keyboard and is the least risky.
