Alright, so to say this quickly, a while ago, my laptop fell of my desk headphone-jack first onto the ground, which broke the headphones in the jack at the time. I was able to get headphones out of the laptop, but since that accident, audio only comes through the right ear when I use headphones. The headphones I use work fine on everything else, So I at least know it's not the headphones.

You have to take the laptop apart and discover exactly what is broken and how.

Is there anyway to fix it without taking apart my laptop? I mean, I don't even know how I would know what's broken..

No.
This is called "Identify the problem before applying a solution"

There is no magical clicky software solution to fix a physically broken port.

You have 3 options here:
1. Take it to someone who can diagnose and fix it
2. Learn to do that yourself.
3. Live with it as is.

Personally, I think you should go with option #2.

I mean, I don't even know how to disassemble my laptop. I've tried taking the screws on the bottom of the laptop off, but that didn't let me remove it.

We out here can't talk you through it.

Find a video on disassembly, and the service manual.
Or take it to someone to fix.
