Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!
The older laptops only have very rudimentary hardware diagnostics, so there is most likely, no fan test that you can run to determine if the fan is failing -- but from what you have said, it sounds like it is.
Fan replacements are cheap ($25 USD or so) but you often have to competely disassemble the laptop just to get to the fan -- so I would not recommend your doing this unless you are experienced at it.
My suggestion is that you take the laptop to a HP Service Center to see if they will provide an estimate for running diagnostics and, if necessary, replacing the fan: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00372730?jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0004
Also, since this laptop is not covered under warranty anymore, you are free to take it to other laptop repair facilities.
