While removing the optical drive can offer you some room. You would need to find a SATA to MXM interface adapter (PCI) which I've never seen. Keep in mind the SATA interface is only SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) so the it won't be very good for anything heavy graphic.
 
Then you need to have room for cooling of the MXM card the MacBook Pro's are designed to be thin so you would end up needing to create a new bottom cover to house the cooling system and fan. Then you still have a power issue the MXM card & fan will likely draw to much power.
 
And lastly, you would need aan iMac MXM card as Apple uses custom firmware on their cards.

By the time you designed and had built the needed pieces it would cost more that buying a newer model with better onboard graphics.
 
Bottomline this is a very long reach!!
