You might need more adhesive to put it back together and yes a hair dryer should be fine. Hope this helps.

Which one of these would be the best? Cause I don't want to buy something and it's not what I need...https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?...

Actually, since you are repairing an ipod, most people use this and is similar to what is used on apple products. https://www.amazon.com/NIUTOP-Ship-Stick...

Okay so that's what I would need then to put it back together?

Yes But Don't Heat One Spot Too Much Or You Have A Chance Of Melting The Insides Other Then That It Should Work.

I would definitely have a professional look at repairing the charging port on this model. Saying this is a difficult task is an understatement even for professional micro solderers. The charging port is soldered with high melt alloy to the board itself. Basically this is a $@$* repair usually not worth doing.

I would send it to someone, but I have no clue on who to send it to for repair.
