Are you planning on shipping your MacBook somewhere to have this done?...since we have no idea where you are located (you didn't say & neither does your profile) in order to suggest local options.

Placing an SSD in the optical bay is not going to speed up the system unless you make it your startup drive. The SSD really should be installed in place of your internal hard drive. The internal hard drive can then be moved to the optical bay. You want to use the SSD as your startup drive and where all your major applications are located.
