A power supply was inadvertently plugged into the left hand blue coloured USB port and it seems it actually smoked. Unsurprisingly nothing happens with laptop now. No lights or fan noise.
1. I am guessing the USB port is toasted, but wondering weather anything else is gone as well.
2. Can the USB port be replaced.
3. Any guidance how difficult this would be.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
Unlike the USB ports on the other side, this one is integrated to the board as they usually replace the entire board itself. Board level tech may attempt repairing the port alone but there is no guarantee of functionality.
I hope this helps answer your query.
