You can definitely buy the requisite parts aftermarket - DigiKey would be the first place I would look. You could also remove the parts from another rMBP (e.g. flood damaged or something). You can probably do the modification without damaging other things on the board, but it would be difficult. You are not going to do it at home. You're going to need ...

With some care it can be done safely. It depends by and large on what kind of loads you're placing on the MacBook when it's being used like this. The MacBook Pro's ventilation operates optimally with the lid open.
