    I'm too poor at the moment to be able to afford a new PSU
    but I need a temporary solution
    I managed to salvage the old fan from an old PSU

    my current is DC12V 0.13a

    and the old one is DC12V and 0.23a

    I just want to know if it'll be alright to replace the buzzing fan with the 0.23a one as a temporary solution until next week when I get paid

    sure. the old one also has higher wattage.

    current wattage is 12 x 13 = 156 watts (very undersized)

    old PSU is 12 x 23 = 276 watts (somewhat better, but still undersized.) I assume you have an older computer. Neither PSU is sufficient for a new system. Most new systems can't run well with less than 400watts.
