The fans are quite easy to replace on their own. Review this IFIXIT teardown MacBook Pro 15" Touch Bar Teardown The 13” is exactly the same setup up. Jump to Step 11. You do need to take the logic board out to get to the fans screws.

Why do you think you need to replace either one of them? Often times dust and debris cake up the fan blades which if cleaned solves the issue.

Lets work it from my system is doing this ... Or my system is not doing this ... I did this and now the system is not working ... Or lastly, I want to do this because ...

The more details the better.

The difficulty on this varies on your tech savvy ability. I would definitely watch a teardown on youtube or here seeing if its something you can do yourself.

don’t forget to have proper tools

I dropped my 2017 13" MacBook Pro and since then the left fan isn't working. How do I find out whether the fan needs replacement or if it's simply malfunctioned?

The easiest way is to use some software which gains access to the SMC services of the system. I would use this one TG Pro Its on sale now for $10 which is a good deal!
