Great work - but help on where to source the battery would be good too :)

It's available as a generic - it's a '14500' Li-Ion battery, 3.7V - typically 750-800mAh. Dimensions: 50mm x 14mm (diameter).

You did everyrhing except the most important part to me

How did you unsolder the battery, and solder the new battery?

I was going to buy the tools from the local store but realized i don't know how to appropriately unsolder/solder battery tabs.

Non the less you are the only one who made such explanation, thank you.
