Chosen Solution

amy droz, you could either change the Charging Port Dock Connector Flex Cable or try to solder a new micro USB port on your flex cable. Since you describe yourself as "um technology challenged" it might be easier for you to replace the flex cable The flex cable would be available at places like this as well as on here and here as well and the micro USB port can be bought right here. Use this teardown to help you with the task. Hope this helps, good luck

Update

The flex cable connects one circuit board via a connector to the main logic board. The smaller circuit board holds the charging port as well as other components. It is a "simple" switch over, versus having to solder. The attached image shows you what it looks like.
