Basically I have a blackwidow tournament edition and was sad that it doesnt have any lit up keys. I would have been happy iwth AWSD but nooo Razer is dumb. I saw some keyboard caps but I didn't really see any that were backlit. I would guess I would have to some how mod the keyboard to get power to the keys but that wouldnt really be much of a problem. Also, Google didn't seem to be too helpful on this subject. I hope you guys can beat Google haha.

Probably your best option. This is a reputable seller by the way. I think he/she is on geekhack and does some fairly popular custom keycaps.

One issue might be that the profile of the keycap might not match that of the rest of the keyboard. But that may not matter, some keyboard manufacturers do that sort of thing intentionally (like the optional WASD on the Corsair K60).

I see these are cherry red keycaps. My blackwidow uses blues. Will this be a problem?

They are just Cherry MX keycaps. It does not matter which kind of Cherry MX switch it uses, they are all the same when it comes to fitting keycaps. It even says this in the description of the keycaps. These are similar to the ones in your keyboard because they are made out of the same material (ABS) and have the same basic profile (OEM). There can however be small height differences and such.
