Yes you can. OWC just posted ram upgrades for these models (non-retina). I purchased 16GB and I can't wait for it to get here. Don't buy ram from Apple unless you're rich.

Taking the Mac Book Pro is very simple and it will only take you around 10 minutes; in addition they have DIY videos. Just follow the 2011 MacBook pro video instructions, since the 2012 construction is basically the same.
