The main difference is whether the unit has a SD card slot or not. The keyboard connector sits in a different place on the non SD models.

The keyboards can be interchanged. But not the top case assembly. The keyboard is held in place with around 50 very small screws. You need to work carefully being careful to not strip the heads of the screws. The mac pro keyboards all are backlit and if your unibody has the connector on the logic board you can upgrade to a backlit keyboard. Good luck
