Answer:
Answer:

Your best bet may be to replace the keyboard with an Apple keyboard. You can find them used (in great shape at www.macsales.com) and likely also on E-Gay too. You can attempt System Preferences - Keyboard and do keyboard shortcuts for the keys you need but I'm not sure that will do what you want.
