Yup, that is your battery connector. For the next time keep in mind that the best way of opening the battery connector is by using a paperclip bend into an L-shape and then gently pulling straight up. Any other way just breaks the connector of the board. Since the connector broke of the logic board, there are only two solutions. One is to get another connector, if yours has broken contacts. It is available at places like this. Once you determined the condition of your connector, have somebody knowledgeable with SMD components solder it on. Check the traces on the board, sometimes they do tear off as well. The only other way is to replace the logic board. Here is the guide for the logic board removal

So. If i purchase the "Logic Board Main Board Battery" and will pay a guy with knowledge how to replase all these SMD things, and he will place this on my ipod, will it be good?


Yes once you have the right connector (it is available at Amazon as well as other places) it can be soldered back on. Just make sure that the person that solders has a bit of experience. After that your iPod will be good to go.

BTW you do want to consider changing your unique @ username before you run into issues with language warning on our forum. We are pretty strict about this.
