Mini-DVI port apparently has failed. Is it possible to replace?
Previously working mini-DVI port stopped working on 17" Intel iMac. Is it possible to repair/replace this port? Or even get parts?

I don't think so. Such repair would be a very advanced DIY.
A less complicated repair would be to replace the logic board. That too would be a very advanced DIY as you basically have to completely dismantle, then reassemble the machine.
Do some research as to the costs involved. You might find a repair shop locally, or online that could replace the port (probably from recycled parts). . . It might be more cost effective to part out your machine.
