If the Xilinx chip came from the same type of board, then it should be OK to desolder it and solder it in place in your other board.
These chips are programable, which means that they contain some code to handle/operate the logics in the accelerator board, you can't just buy a similar chip and replace it - it needs to have the same code programmed. It's very doubtfully that you'll ever find the code (and you'd need to find a JTAG for the chip to program it) for these accelerator boards, so unless you have another identic accelerator, you're out of luck!

Keep your eyes open for someone selling/giving away a broken card of the same type, then you can harvest its chips to get one board up and running.
