    first off. view this guide on how to disassemble your ds lite
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=98240

    yes, you will need a tri-wing screwdriver. they are available from many web-based stores for as cheap as .99usd

    yes, you can charge your ds lite with a usb charge cable. however, you will need the correct one. again, like the tri-wing screwdriver, many web-based stores sell these (the cost about 3-4.00usd)

    if it is in fact the power switch that is broken, those cost under 10.00usd and a few sellers on ebay offer them. however, your soldering skills need to be pretty good (I wouldn't attempt it yourself if you've not soldered anything tiny before).

    use Dealextreme to buy a triwing screwdriver (super cheap)

    To fix the power switch you will need to buy one, though I'm not sure where sells them...

    Unless you have a (broken) DS of your own that you can take the power switch from.
