    It's called a shroud, but you managed to get a stock heatsink and fan without it?  That's unusual.

    That's a socket478, but how are you planning to replace it?  I don't think you can solder one in, unless you have done this before.  On the other hand, the heatsink locking clips push down very hard on the cpu, and you might be able to get away with that, but the pin contact may be iffy.

    Those are heatsink retaining clips.  Never heard of them sold separately, though.

    Post it in a public photo account, like Yahoo.  You just need to open an account.
