Replacing some damaged parquet wood floring

I had water lift up some of the parquet squares. When I removed some, I notice that there was a small hole in the concrete that had been patched, but the patch came off, also there was some brown glue residue on the concrete fooring. (1) Do I have to remove every bit of glue to the bare cement slab, or just remove the groves? (2) Is there a tool to remove the wood glue? (3) What do you use to patch the cement floor is probably 6"x6"? I notice they don't sell quart size glue, since I'm replacing about 10 squares is a waste to purchase one gallon of glue, any suggestions? (4) The parquet floor is about 20+ years, is Bruce L94 Sorrento Chesnut, what are the chances of finding replacements? Thank you for any help.

Would be nice to see a picture so we can see what your seeing.
I'd like see just how big this hole is.
#1 See if you can find the replacement first.
No way will even an exact matching new tile match the old tiles.
UV and wear and tare will have changed the looks of the tiles.

Scraping and elbow grease takes care of most of the prep. I've never installed parquet over concrete but I know you can get the adhesive for wood in quarts so you might check around. You could also contact an installer and see if he'd sell/give you a partial bucket.

As Joe stated - make sure you can find suitable replacement tiles first!!
