TouchID will only work with the original home button. A replacement home button for the 4.7" iPhone 7 is already available on iFixit iPhone 7/7 Plus Home Touch Sensor Assembly

Follow these instructions for replacement:

iPhone 7 Plus Home/Touch ID Sensor Replacement

However, as the phone is almost brand new I would ask Apple how much they quote for a replacement.

Cheers

Do not replace the home button. The new button is ABSOLUTELY USELESS.

Go to Apple for repair.

However what do you in the case that the original home button is broken. I installed an aftermarket home button (and am aware there's no touch ID function) but I don't even get regular button function after replacing it. Any suggestions? Does it seem like a defective button?

Just read the answer.

I just had the exact same issue with a phone that was less than 30 days old. The phone was never dropped or damaged and had no issue besides the cracked home button. The first sign was that the touch id was not available and when I tried to push the home button to load to the home screen, the button literally cracked. I sent it to Apple only to be told that it was damage/misuse and not covered under warranty and would cost me approximately $319 (the out-of-warranty) fee for a repair!! Never buying an Iphone again...I'll stick with Samsung!
