Unless you know of the exact SSD Apple is currently using which has that sensor built in? I can't find that SSD model number and manufacture.
Even if you found the correct SSD to use, it's still a fairly difficult and involved procedure to install it yourself. You also risk voiding your warranty and damaging your iMac. As pointed out, there are videos and published step by step instructions you can access to get an idea of how to do it.

As you're a new member you are not eligible yet to post anything for sale in our BST forum. You can get an idea of what price your iMac is worth from similar sales on eBay or Craig's list.
