I have a T410 which its touchpad does not work properly (Its surface is worn out)
Could I change the Touchpad? (Does Lenovo or any other company sells touchpad separately?)

The touchpad is a part of the palmrest. The palmrest must be replaced.
Otherwise you can search for a user, who has a damaged palmrest with a properly working touchpad. Then it might be possible to replace the touchpad itself.
I've done it several times at T60/T61 without any problem:
If you attach the mounting bracket wrong, the touchpad can be moved in the direction to the display.

I have replaced the wrist rest on my 2.5 year old t500 a few times already due to cracking, but I had to send the old one back so your out of luck... :\
Both had tracpads that were pretty worn out though so even if I could have kept the old parts, they probably would not have lasted you long. My buttons also had dimples in them where my fingers pressed.
I think the plasic Lenovo uses is pretty soft as non of my other consumer laptops have done this.....
