Don't they come with a SIM card already installed? I believe that's how they are here in the U.S.

If the drive is clicking, it's probably on it's way out - I would back up your system ASAP (Time Machine works well for this) and replace that drive with a new one ASAP.

Almost everything in all laptops is integrated into the main board and cannot be upgraded. About the only thing you can upgrade on a laptop is the RAM and the hard drive.
