So after a few months of suffering the horrible graphics on my T-410 with integrated graphics and WXGA, in addition to other issues such as left palmrest squeaking, blue screens, USB ports not working after hibernation, etc, I would like to send in my laptop for a fix. What would it entail to switch it for discrete graphics and WXGA+ ? In other words, is replacing what I have for this new configuration doable?

the depot can't upgrade the motherboard or LCD, you will have to purchase a new machine.

This would require an entirely different motherboard, as well as a new LCD panel. If you are doing the work yourself this isn't incredibly difficult however it is not going to be cost effective. You're better off sending your system in for repair and then selling it and putting the money towards the system which you want.
