The shortcuts for zooming in and out in Notepad++ require using a mousewheel or a number pad, neither of which can be found on most laptops (like mine).

You can change the shortcut keys by the menu option Settings>Shortcut Mapper, but the zoom features don't show up on this list.

How can I change the zoom shortcut keys to something else? (Alt- and Alt=, for example.)

The Zoom commands are mapped in the Scintilla commands section.

Using the menu option Settings -> Shortcut Mapper... go to the Scintilla Commands tab and you can change the mapping there:
