The socket should already be there. Upgrade 2.0 Core 2 duo Processor with MacBook Pro logic board or Is backlit keyboard compatible with MacBook?!.

Are you looking for the ZIF socket for the keyboard backlit connector? I think this is what you are looking for: link

I think it can be soldered but requires above-average soldering skill. Looks like the socket has 6 pins to be soldered to the board.
