Gibson SGs are too thin to have a floyd rose.

^ Yeah, they are, also, it would look weird and you would need to do a fair bit of routing.

Conclusion: Nope, don't bother.

Yep its a Viper. If you want a SG with a FR you can pick up a top loading FR on ebay or somewhere. They just attach the the bridge and tail piece posts.

Tony Iommi has an SG with a Floyd Rose, so yes its possible. But as for your first mod.... Don't do it. It takes a lot of routing and precise measurements, and being off by an inch is enough to ruin your guitar. Start slow and work your way up.

^ Tony Iommi can afford an SG custom made to house a Floyd Rose.

Ibanez S series guitars have a ZR trem. It's made by Ibanez and doesn't use standard tremolo routing like Floyds or Fender style tremolos.

It could be possible to put a Floyd on an SG if you grinded down the tremolo block so it will fit inside the body, but you will need some nice equipment and you will loose a lot of sustain and tone.

You might want to think about a Kahler tremolo. It's designed to do Floyd Rose stuff, but uses very little routing, and even comes in a stud mounted version.

how do those marshall handles compare tonewise to, say, mesa handles?

I'd like to add that Ibanez S bodies are thicker in the centre than SG's.
