Sadly the socket is not replaceable.

Your choices are to max out the one slot with largest the system will support. The other option here is replacing the logic board.

Before you replace the logic board make sure the bottom cover spacers are still in good shape otherwise you could end up with a bad socket again from the pressure from the bottom cover.
