Is it possible to replace USB port?

My elephone p6000's USB port has been damaged to the point that has felt from the motherboard that it used to belong to. I have seen some sites that sell a USB port for this specific model, but I am wondering if it is possible to replace it for a new one for a regular user and, if so, which procedure should I follow, since AFAIK there's only a teardown guide explaining how to disassemble Elephone p6000, but does not mention anything specifically about USB port, other than it belongs to a secondary board (visit step 3: Elephone P6000 pro Teardown ).

Thanks in advance

It depends on what you mean by regular user.

The process is quite simple: you just unsolder the old port and then solder a new one. There are plenty of instructions. Just make sure that you follow the instructions.

Thanks for your answer, George! Could you please tell me where are those instructions you are refering to? Although I am quite new to iFixit (just registered), AFAIK there's only a teardown guide explaining how to disassemble Elephone p6000, but does not mention anything specifically about USB port, other than it belongs to a secondary board (Elephone P6000 pro Teardown).

Since the USB has fallen apart from it, I was wondering if I can just simply plug a new one or I have to replace the secondary board.

Its possible but you'll have to find someone who can do it.
