I have a 2003 KFX 400. My lower ball joint fell right out. Can you buy the lower ball joint or a new A-Arm would have to be put in?

I've never heard of a ball joint just falling out before. You can buy just ball joints, you don't have to by new a arms unless the a arm is cracked where the ball joint was. Also remember that ball joint size are different from some years. 03' - 04' use different size ball joints than 05' - 08' years.

That depends. The easiest thing to do is buy a new (or good used) a-arm for an 03 or 04. You will have to buy the whole arm as the lowers are welded in.

OR, if you have the tools, you can mod the lower a-arms to accept the same types of screw in adjustable ball joints used in many aftermarket a-arms. There is a good "how to" on suzuki central.
