"Thanks in advance" is a courteous short way of saying "I really appreciate the time you've taken in reading this, and any time you take in answering it." Don't discourage it; we could all use more civility in our lives.

Technically yes, but its a special kind of diode that makes solid state lasers solid state and not a tube. If you want to replace it, you're better off splurging and getting a new one, sorry if its not the answer you were hoping for.

No they do not. The red laser is a solid state semiconductor as is a red LED.
