I have a z500 (non-touch) that recently had its screen broken. I plan to purchase the LCD part and replace it myself. I was wondering if I could purchase the part(s) for the z500 touch and give myself touchscreen capabilities as well.
Is such a solution possible?
If so, what parts might I need to purchase to make such a solution work?

Welcome to the forum and Happy New year!!
This in all probabilities won't work.
Reason: Touch devices have an extra glass touch layer over the lcd and both the touch and the lcd are distinctively attached to the main circuit/systemboard of the device/laptop/mobile/tablets.
So, firstly, your mainboard should atleast have a port to attach a touch glass and secondly, the structure of the laptop should support it too.
So, in my opinioin, it is a suicidal move and you should try it.
Hope this Helps.
