If true, that's a strange analysis by Disk Warrior. I would think DW is telling you about drive malfunctions within its enclosure, not the internals of your Mac. As far as I'm aware, DW does not go any further than that. Your logic board should be OK since you can boot to Windows 7.

The replacement hard drive can be any make as long as it's SATA and 3.5" wide. Replacing a hard drive yourself in an iMac can be a fairly difficult task. Make sure you're up to it before attempting the replacement yourself.

Take a look at the instructions at iFixit: The free repair manual.
