It is also uneven with the rest of the sidewalk.

    It will need a prop underneath to build it up to the right height. Fill in around the prop with concrete. Settle the slab on top and leave to cure 48hrs. Fill any gaps with a bit more of the mix........

    Fix? No. This is broken beyond repair and needs to be replaced. Removal and replacement will be a permanent repair, rather than something temporary like removing it, making a new bed and putting the pieces back in and caulking it back together. Likely not any more work.

    You can't fix it. It need to replace with the new one by removing the broken pieces, prepare the good foundation then build the same with the concrete and rebar

    Square off both ends with a concrete saw. Remove the center pieces. Build a new form and pour a new center piece.

    Since I don't have the skills to repair, remove and redo a broken cement sidewalk, instead what I would try is to cover over the old sidewalk with a wooden walkway. You can use wood pallets joined end to end to save money or buy the lumber. Then treat/stain wood. Just like you would do if you made an outdoor deck. What do you think?

    you could also remove the broken bits, break them into smaller, odd shaped pieces , and relay them when you have evened out and compacted the underlying ground. Place them back together, and put cement down the cracks. Water it in for crazy paving... much more interesting!
