I actually snapped the end off this clip trying to to remove it but the ribbon cable still doesn't move.

1) How do I remove this ribbon ?

2) when i reconnect would a drop of superglue be an appropiate way to hold it all back together?  Or maybe it's possible to buy that socket somewhere and take the clip off it?

You might just have to flip that clip up.

Yep, it'll be something like that.
As long as you can stick the ribbon cable to a nonmoving surface the I'd put the cable in stick the clip down with electrical insulating tape, and stick the ribbon down as well.  Superglue seems a bit final to me, though if it's all working and you know it's never coming apart again then I guess you could glue it.   Personally I'd be wary of sticking it for good.
