ialexkim, the IC in question is the Avago ACPM-7181 Power Amplifier. Here is the datasheet for it. No, you can not just stick it to your logic board with thermal paste. It will need a reball/reflow, and you can only do this at home if you have the experience and the tools to do so. I would try and find a place that can do this kind of repair.
