Here's a site I found that sells the rear casings in every color:

However my problem is that I wish there were some sort of documentation on this. Well, time to watch the teardown 3 times through...

Couldn't you get in some legal troubles for buying a back housing containing the apple logo? Last I read (on some random forum), someone's $xxxx shipment of iPhone parts was withheld in customs for this very reason (Trademark infringement).

Be careful!

Can anyone confirm whether or not you need to actually removed the whole front screen and parts on the inside to change the back... I've watched some videos that basically do that, but just want to make sure

Yes the screen needs removed and the whole inside of the phone needs striped out and rebuilt in the new frame
