  1. No you need to remove that pin without damaging the socket.
  2. Make sure you use the lever to unlock the socket. If you can't get that pin out then you can't use that motherboard.
  3. Oh you could, but its dodgy as hell hehe :)
    break the corresponding pin off the new cpu ensuring its long enough to contact the bit left in the socket :P
    or try identifying the broken pin, it may be a ground or unused pin you have broken
