Yes, very easy to replace.  About 8 phillips screws.  Unfortunately though,
the shroud is fixed at 92mm or so, so a bigger, slower fan is not possible.

It seems that it doesn't have a cooler at all for the cpu but as you say

Sort-of.  I think the "heat pipe" is essentially 4-5 copper tubes that run
to a fine-finned radiator.  The fan vents the radiator.  It is actually a
fairly elegant, compact, and reliable design.
