Chances are, if you're asking these questions, it's going to be a real good idea to have a professional do it for you. However, here are the answers:

1. Guitar Center. Musicians Friend. There are others, but these two are good.

2. You're going to need a soldering iron and some soldering skills. If you don't have the skills or the equipment, take it to Guitar Center, or yout local guitar shop and have them do it right for you.

3. Again, it's not all that tough, but if you don't know where to start, then it's best to take it to someone who can do it right.

4. This is definitely one of those guitar tech, or perhaps even a Luthier, jobs. This is a very advanced thing you're wanting to do and if you do it wrong, or have no idea where to start, you'll screw up the guitar. Most guys wouldn't even think of tackling this one on their own. I've changed the pickups in a guitar, but would never try this one.
theres one little problem, we dont have those in australia haha. im not 100% bout the FR yet. some of my friends have told me it ruins the tone of a les paul, the strings oscillate or something like that.

Dont get the FR on it, buy a seperate guitar for that, once you've installed it, wich means routing ALOT of wood out for it and installing a new nut you'll have to deal with the tuning issues constantly.

The pick ups arent hard to swap, if you can follow a diagram you're good to go with that, just make sure you dont cook the pots when you solder the wire to them.

If you decide you want to get the pick ups i'm sure people on here will help you further when you purchase them.

What kind of music do you play, that'll have a major affect on what pick ups you use
Black Knight CF-60F Semi-Acoustic.

Black Knight CP200 (Red flamed maple).

Neck-thru 4 string bass.

Acoustic 6 string.
No Guitar Center in Australia? What's up with that, mate? You may not have a local GC, but you do have plenty of guitar stores and most of them have qualified techs that can do what you're looking to have done.

I think I'd leave the FR alone. It's going to change the guitar too much - probably for the worst.
i play a mixture of metalcore and post-hardcore. there's plenty of shops around here, but not many sell seperate guitar parts, since the economy is screwed and all, prices over here are sky high. it costs an extra 300 bucks to install a pickup set that costs 400 dollars.

if you must have a les paul style with a floyd, you'd be better off buying an agile or an esp.
2003 Fender Standard Strat w/ Texas Specials
2012 Babicz Identity Dreadnaught
2015 Gibson Les Paul Traditional SR
Line 6 POD HD500
Peavey XXX 112
Fender Blues Jr
1.- guitars stores. just ask. also:

2.- you get a soldering gun or iron and solder them according to a Schematic. Schematic are at:

3.- yous put them in the hole and solder them. btw, do you have pickups? I would reccomend cheap pickups for this job, because you wont know the result. trY GFS pickups at guitar fetish (link above) or the pickups in their clearance section.

4.- to install a floyd you need to make a big hole in the front for the recessing ( http://www.ibanezregister.com/images/images-rg/340/340jpg.jpg ) and a big ne i the back for the screws ( http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e282/DannyKamerman/Floating%20Trem%20Lesson/FT3.jpg ). Also, you can't change tunings very often with an FR and if you get a cheap one, it will suck. If you realy want an FR in a les paul for under $300 US dollars:
(i reccomend the last three)

1. Guitar Parts:
Mighty Mite
All Parts
Luthier Supplies
LP Addict
(the last two are users here on UG, they can get you discounts)

2. Pickups
What there not wired in already?
Buy a soldering iron from somewhere like Dicksmith for cheap and some 40/60 solder. There are loads of soldering tutorials on the net and also loads of wiring diagrams

3. Fit what in?

4. This is a VERY difficult job. For all your floyd rose answers search "The Ultimate Floyd Rose thread"
