Q: Can a clan in which a member dies get a new member?
A: Absolutely. However, it can be difficult, depending on how long a clan has been together and which member passed away. Not that any one breed is more important than another, but in the case of the loss of a Matara, the female member is the rarest and most difficult to find. Even with Earther women joining clans, there are few enough of them that it is unlikely to happen. Imdikos are also rare and tend to clan young, so those would be in short supply and highly unlikely to be won.
New Dramoks entering in long-standing clans would present a different sort of problem, as the clan would be used to a certain leadership style--the surviving clan might find it extremely difficult to adjust to a new leader. Many clans would not make an effort of any kind to attract a new Dramok.
Nobeks have the most success in joining a clan which has lost a warrior mate. They have the numbers, and since most see their main objective to be protecting the clan, it comes down to finding the right personality which fits...although that's not always easy either!
Thanks for the question.
