Is it possible to install a non-backlit keyboard without its socket?

I want to install the backlit keyboard on my MacBook, but i don't have the proper socket within the logic board.

So my logic board looks like this:

Its a 4 point ZIF socket, but I don't know where to purchase one. Even if you get one, maybe salvaged from a busted board, it'll be still a !#*^ of a job to solder it on.

You can always fit the keyboard sans backlight.
