If you have a key blank (with RFID chip) you can get it cut at any store that does key cutting. Then you can program it to the car yourself, providing you have at least one working key already.
If this is a brand new fob, then as Dave says (^) you'll have to get it programmed, either at the dealer, or at a locksmith that has the equipment to do it. You cannot do it yourself. The only alternative is a Dorman replacement that comes with its own programmer.
If you are just replacing the fob for cosmetic reason, then you can buy a cheap shell from eBay and swap the innards over to it. Then no need for programming.
