Looking at the picture it seems like the plastic frame is damaged. This is what I would do:

1. If the SIM card tray can get in and it works then do that. If you have lost the SIM Card tray you can get it on this website, here is the link: iPhone 5c SIM Card Tray

2. If you are referring to the actual plastic housing you can replace the rear case and here is the manual link

3. Now if there is damage to the sim card socket on the logic board there is no easy way to do this! You need good micro soldering equipment and it is definitely not a DIY unless you have experience doing some soldering.
