For the last month our house kept serama hen has been broody, she was on 2 eggs for the longest time, but they unfortunatley didn't make it.

Even though there is no eggs she still gets in the nesting box even then the cage is closed off, or then with her roo, then I tried putting a good sized ice pack in the box but she didn't care.

so are there so other ways to stop the broodiness, at least long enough to be fertilized to try at being a mother again.

Could you get some very young chicks somewhere? Day old to week old. Then wait 'till the evening when she's sleeping and slip them under her.
