Can I just replace the controller with another one?

not unless you also have the Toshiba tools and software to setup the controller on the board to the NAND chips.
It is Sandforce based, so chip off is also probably out of the question.

Are you kidding, not even chip-off :(

If necessary, I can help you to confirm the voltage measurements for the DC-DC converters.

I pulled off the controller as it was burning like hell, hoping I could swap another one from another 256gb Macbook Air SSD...

IMHO, worth trying as I see no other solution. Though chances extremely low.

Well,
In My experience while i used to repair desktop and laptop motherboards to chip level sometimes due to a DC - DC supply section component short the IC can burn like hell ,You panicked and yanked it of the board without confirming that ,This is not a good idea imho .

There was a short in the line and it was the controller itself, sorry about not mentioning that. I checked yes.
