So, I found a repair guy and he told me the phone is broken and he can't fix it!!! Kind of funny!! Yeah, I think I knew it was broken.
Always a possibility...and one that cannot truly be diagnosed at an internet distance.
So, is it really not cost effective to pay someone to try and fix these things? This is a little frustrating to say the least.
As with so many things in our world, replacement is very often much more cost effective than repair. It is a pity, and generates a tremendous amount of waste disposal...but it is by no means unique to the SmartPhone market.

Is it possible, with this phone being a second hand phone, that it could have been "turned off" in some way? It blows my mind that this is not fixable in some way. It's too nice of a phone to let it just be thrown away basically.

Given your description of symptoms, none that I can think of.

If the damage is physical, and is blocking the flow of power from the battery to the device, then only a qualified hardware technician can determine the viability of repair. And, from all you've described, that is what I deduce...the battery is fine, but the power just cannot get out of the battery and into the device. And that involves a bunch of wires, circuit boards, and other things...all hardware.
