The chain probably connects to a small switch inside the fan body. If you open the fan up, you can see if there's enough chain left to attach a new length of chain.
If the chain is completely broken off the switch, you can replace the switch. They are inexpensive and easy to find at most hardware stores.
Yes, you can replace the pull chain itself and/or the switch. On most fans there is a chain on the side for the fan - it's usually one pull for fast, another for medium, a third for slow and a fourth for off. The pull chain for the lamp is in the middle on the bottom of the fan, just below the lamp(s).
Most ceiling fans with lamps have three small screws you remove at the very base of the lamp. You can unscrew the base and carefully pull it down. If it looks like something you can repair or replace, turn off breaker or remove the fuse that controls the lamp before you continue.
The switch is easily removed and disconnected, but one thing you have to watch out for. Many fans do not just use a simple on-off pull chain switch. Some fan lights use a fixture with three or four lamps, and the pull switch will turn on one lamp on the first pull, two with the 2nd pull and all of them on the 3rd pull, then the next pull turns it all off. The switch will have 3 or 4 wires, and you should make sure you label the wires so you can put them back properly.
As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.
Before you do any work yourself,
on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,
always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

I am guessing your pull chain broke the last time you turned it on, so here is what I would do in that case. Get yourself another piece of pull chain or even the broken piece you have left over, find a ball chain coupling and reattach it to the loose piece of chain. Turn off the circuit breaker feeding the fan. You`ll know you have the right one when the fan stops. Remove the cover with the hole that the chain went through, attach the coupling and the new piece of chain. Feed the chain through the hole it goes through and reattach the cover. Turn on the breaker and it`s fixed.
If the old chain has been complete pulled out of the fan, then your only option will be to replace the switch located inside the fan. there are usually 3-5 wires connected to this switch. These switches are typically available at most home improvement centers, but note that there are several types. And it is best to bring the old switch with you. But consider that this repair is on 110VAC household current. And is best done by a qualified service person or electrician. Incorrectly installing the switch can lead to safety & fire hazards.
With most pull chain fan switches, you'll need to replace the switch, though on some models you may be able to reattach the chain. To replace the switch, you will need to know whether it operates the fan or light. If the switch goes to the fan, you will need to know how many speeds the fan has. Here's how to go about it:Start by turning off the circuit breaker to the fan.Next, remove the cover on the fan housing or the globe light so you can access the switch, and unscrew the nut on the outside of the switch that holds it on.Pull the switch out of the housing from the inside, leaving the wiresuperithub.com
If the fan part of the ceiling fan is controlled by a dimmer switch, that is sometimes why it makes noises and buzzing because it's being set at a desired point than what the ceiling fan's motor is used to, replace the dimmer switch with a standard light switch and use its pull chain to select a desired setting.
