Pretty much as stated in the heading. Can anyone advise what replacement fan I should buy for a Nvidia Geoforce 210.
I have very little knowledge of hardware so any extra information would be greatly appreciated.

Here is what I would do: The card is very easy to cool thanks to low performance and power consumption. Proof: lots of passively cooled variants with rather small heatsinks exist. And replacement fans are hard to find, potentially expensive (considering the value of the card), and might produce similar noise.
I would buy a relatively silent 60mm case fan, and mount that e.g. with zip ties to the heatsink of the card. And disconnect the existing fan.
For example: https://www.blacknoise.com/site/en/products/noiseblocker-it-fans/nb-blacksilentfan-series/60x60x25mm.php?lang=EN
These run at 2100rpm or 1600rpm when connected directly to 12V, and cost around 5€. That should be barely noticeable, considering the PC also has a stock Intel CPU cooler.
Edit forgot to mention: A GT 210 is not exactly a capable GPU. In fact, it is even slower than most graphics solutions integrated into Intel CPUs. So unless you use this GPU to get additional display connectors that your motherboard does not provide, you could simply ditch the card and use the CPUs integrated graphics instead.
