Its not so difficult to remove the keyboard from the Top Case. just remove the logic board and dvd rom. then remove the keyboard light sheet then remove the plastic shielding for the keyboard in which leds are inserted. then you will see a lots of a small screws. near about 25-30 approx. and unsrew the power on/off screws. then you can ready to change the whole keyboard without changing whole top case ...

Unfortunately you cannot remove the keyboard itself from the topcase without breaking it. If you need to replace the keyboard for whatever reason, then you need to replce the Topcase itself. Refer to rab's answer above to remove and replace the topcase.
