It's a white iMac, I think perhaps 2007 model. Here is the keyboard currently:

There is one that works for Mission Control, but not for Launch Pad.

Do you think there is a way to configure one to work?

You could simply configure a shortcut of your liking for it in:

System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Launchpad & Dock

Check in System Preferences > Mission Control what key is assigned for Launchpad. You can customize the settings of course.

Note that per default pressing F11 for example will work as a media key (change volume in your case). So you need to press fn+F11 instead.
