I want to replace my optical drive with extra USB ports

Texto:

My optical drive isn’t working and I don’t use it enough to justify spending money on a new one or even upgrading to bluray. I also have a 1 TB SSD and am not looking for more storage. I saw another similar thread in which someone suggested soldering in an additional USB hub. This sounds like a good way to break the motherboard, but if it is possible, how would one go about it? Would USB-C be a possibility?

Dispositivo:

MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2012
