Everything is possible! Can you replace the slot or pin yourself or through a friend? If not then getting a replacement board would probably be cheaper.

How are pins soldered ? normaly ? maybe you have any pic of it ?
And where to buy another slot/socket on alibaba is minimum order 2000 sets
on dealextreme and dhgate they sell pci-e x16 extenders for 5$ will be this ok to unsolder it and solder to mobo ? it have to be 164 pins right ?

They are soldered the same way! That is the problem getting a hold of the spare parts!
