If you are lucky, nothing got through and only the keyboard is damaged.  It is possible, but unlikely that you will fet a satisfactory repair.  If it  were mine, I would remove the keyboard to make sure that there was no liquid that got through.  If that were the case, I would consider myself lucky and replace the keyboard.

Yes you can,

 

According to parts lookup keyboard is an optional CRU in other words customer can replace part.  Don't post your serial number here but you can post it at the below website.  Choose keyboards on the left side column
