Just do whatever it takes, it doesnt have to be pretty or even be close to the same size to work well.
The original will pop right off easily. That isn't the problem. But there are no screws and no screw holes; the fan has a soft rubber housing that is shaped to fit around the heatsink.
Personally I wouldn't be using any glue or rubberbands on a heatsink. It gets hot intentionally. A new heatsink costs $20-30 at most. E.g, you can get a Gelid Slim Silence for Socket AM2 for $22. Heck, a decent new 120mm fan alone will cost $15. Just buy a new cooler you like and spend a half hour to install it.
The problem with that Freezer 64 LP cooler design isn't a bad fan. Arctic Cooling fans are very quiet. The problem is it's a "low profile" design with only 56mm fans, so, in order to move any air they have to spin rapidly and thus they make noise. Maybe that's why it's a discontinued model.
