Thanks to a poster, I now know I can just solder the LED into the board, but what size LED should I get? Also, where is the best place to get such LEDs? I feel like it should be easily searched, but most things that come up are LED related items, and not the bulb itself. I am new to to the DIY scene.
Get 2x3x4 rectangular LEDs from AliExpress. You can also use 3mm flangeless, but there might be issues with some keycaps. They should cost about $5 for 100 shipped. If you want to get from a US source, try Max Keyboards (110 for $20 + shipping).
Thanks for letting me know! Those looks pretty good and compact.
