You don't need to have USB debugging on to flash with Odin; Odin operates at a 'lower level' than that.

Find Hopper8's 'Odin troubleshooting' thread stickied in General & go through the troubleshooting steps methodically/as many times as you need to in order to get a successful flash.
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !
Failure to search is the leading cause of male impotence on XDA
If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?

Go through all the troubleshooting steps in that thread one by one; if you do this, you will solve whatever is stopping your phone & PC from recognising each other.

Edit - Only hint I'm giving you (because the whole purpose of having a thread like that is so people like me don't have to go through this stuff over & over with people for the 8,963rd time over the past 2.5 yrs) - in your case; start with different USB cables (particularly the one that came with the phone/original Samsung cables) & different USB ports on the PC (no hubs - use mainboard ports only). These are for starters. If they don't work then you go through everything else in the thread one by one.

Right. No more hints, everything you need to fix your phone is in that thread.

It's possible, yes. Only way you're going to know if this is the case/not is by replacing it (the entire board, not just the port itself) though. It's certainly quick/cheap to do yourself, so you don't have a great deal to lose by replacing it (apart from ~US$10) & seeing if this fixes the issue. Search for KeithRoss39's guide in General (search specifically for 'replacing USB charger board'), has all the info you need to help you get this done.
