O.k Zach,grab a coffee..this may take a I go..1)Over the damaged section of flooring lay a spare piece of flooring larger than the area to be patched,align the design and tape it to the existing flooring 2)Use a straightedge and knife to score then cut through both layers of tile(try to follow line designs in pattern if any).3)Take replacement off and remove damaged scored section(You can use a iron over a towel on the section to soften the adhesive until you can pry it up)4.spread the adhesive over your subflooring w/trowel and put your replacement piece in(make sure use right amount of adhesive or it will sit to high or low) weight or object on piece till adhesive drys. 6.To hide the seams on patch try taking aluminum foil w/dull side down and press foil w/very hot iron at seams it will melt cut edges to form solid and almost indetectible bond.OH AND ONE MORE THING...OLDER FLOORING ADHESIVES SOMETIMES CONTAINED ASBESTOS.Read a book on asbestos safe guards so you don't needlessly expose yourself to asbestos.Hope I was of some help!
