I was wondering if it were at all possible put a tremolo bridge onto a string thru body, like without wrecking th guitar or spending loads of moneyz

depends on your guitar and type of vibrato bridge (not tremolo never use this word for pitch. IT'S FOR VOLUME)

You could:
A.) Route it out, to make a new bridge fit. You could do it yourself if you feel comfortable with your wood-working skills, or pay someone to do it. (From what I've heard, it costs about $200 USD).

B.) I think that there are trem/vibrato bridges in existence that sit on top of your guitar. I think the brand is Kahler? I'm not sure, try Googling it though.

ok, now what type of vibrato do you what? a bigsby? That would mean just screwing in a new bridge and the unit itself or a Floyd rose which would require a huge amount of work and unless your a woodworker don't do it yourself. and that is even if they can fit on your guitar (a little pic ain't going to do it) but unless you really like your guitar or it cost a whole lot, the Floyd rose bridge and nut would mean just buying new. these examples are the two extremes, there is a middle ground.

well, you could always hit the chord, then yank the head around...

but installing a complicated trem/vibrato/whatever bar is more pain then it's worth.
