Most notebook optical drives are not too bad, usually only 1 or 2 screws hold the optical drive in from the bottom. Remove the screws, pop out the drive and pop in the new one. For the drive, try here:

Because it is a toshiba laptop, you will need to buy a model-specific dvd drive for your laptop direct from toshiba, or at least from an authorized toshiba reseller. This is not something you would get from your local best buy.
You want something like this:
Order online, or select "Locate Dealer" and find one in your area.
My suggestion is to call up a dealer and verify that this model is compatible with your laptop, because yours is on the older side the slim select bays may be a little too small.

You should be able to, there is usually only one screw holding the drive in, if you hold the replacement up to where the instlled one is, you should see the approximate location of the screw ( may be under another panel, Memory,hard drive etc.., the drive will just slide out, then make sure the connectors are the same, and swap or place the mounting bracket on the new one, and slide it back in place, replacing any screws removed
