No. The touch ID on the home button is linked to the logic board. Using a different one will not allow the fingerprint functionality to work. Original or not, they are linked by a identifier.

Well I tore a home button cable so I guess that the phone will never have touch ID again :(

Like Ben said, the touch ID is linked to the logic board. The only way of getting it back or a new one is to go to apple store and have them repair so they can link the two components together with their software. otherwise the iphone wont have a Touch ID as you said.
