You can replace just the end but most clamp on ends have a lot of problems with corrosion and becoming loose. There are high quality ends but I have never seen them in an auto parts store. Here is one I have found but they are expensive --- http://www.gemplers.com/product/WEB223724/QuickCable- Straight-Clamp-Fusion-Battery-Connectors

Yes, you can. If the cable is long enough. The terminal can be cut off and copper wire stripped and use one like this that clamps on cooper wire

Gemplers also has some really high quality clamp on ends with compression fittings. Not cheap but nice.

The one above with the picture is a easy fix. Make sure you ask for a electrical connection grease that will help with corrosion problems.
