Well, my sister accidentally pulled her headphones out too hard, and the tip of it broke off and is stuck at the end of the headphone jack. Is there any way for me to get it out, because positioning the headphones to get proper sound is a pain, and its not always proper. So is there any way for me to get this out?

Without taking apart the computer, you can try this
Get some gel-type Superglue and a toothpick.
Apply a drop of glue to the end of the toothpick and push it into the broken piece of the plug and hold it there for awhile
When it's fully cured, try pulling it out slowly
