Great guide except for the missing screw sizes. Does anybody know the screw sizes?

I have this laptop with a bad HDD, it was a Toshiba 640 GB , 5400 RPM drive.

I like to know if this laptop supports 7200 RPM drives

Also, does this laptop support an SSD drive ?

Yes, any 2.5in SATA HDD or SSD can be fitted in place of any other.
