Do you mean the CPU fan doesn't turn on when connected to hightlighted pins? He can try other pins, IIRC there are 2-3 other pins available over the board. Otherwise there's a converter which lets you connect multiple fans to single SATA power. Maybe he can try that?

One of the brackets which hold on to the heatsink clips is broken.

OP, try local computer shops. I think with recent AM4 ryzens, all low end heatsinks dont need that bracket and its alweays removed. So very good chance of finding one removed from some motherboard at your local PC shop

Seems someone don’t know how to take the processor fan out tried to take that out forcefully, my team mate claims it was damaged in transport which I highly doubt

It will be bit of task to find it.
My suggestion would be to check if you have any old AMD motherboard lying around.
Try and see if the bracket from old board can be installed here, there are chances it might.
But I'm not sure, what I'm sure of is old AM2 socket cpu coolers are still compatible with AM4 sockets with just plug and play support.
