You can probably have a BT module installed, but if the 'Book is under warranty, an Apple dealer is probably going to have to do it. I'd take the iBook to the nearest Apple Store and see what the Geniuses say.

The good news is that yes, internal bluetooth is supported. As for getting the part, if you can't find it second hand, you could obtain it through an apple authorized place. The takeapart is a bit of work, so if you can do it yourself, you'll save tech fees. If you're not confident you can, get an apple tech to do it for you.
