So when i was getting the headphone jack out of the jack, i pulled too hard and the 3,5mm jack got stuck inside the plug. Is it possible to use headphones on the microphone jack plug?

No you cannot use the microphone jack to get audio on your headphones. That will require wires on your mobo to be rewired which is not quite realistic or convenient. Buy a new jack and solder your headphones.

If you can't remove the old connector from the motherboard port, use the front audio port (if you have one) or a USB to stereo connector like this one:

Install realtek audio manager, then connect earphones to mic jack, after that select the front speaker out in the realtek application when the window of realtek pops up! there you go, it's done! the sound maybe low but it works!
