Hi I have a 5D3, and just got a split screen to swap, online. I'm not really keen to swap out the screen myself. Anybody knows of a shop in peninsula area which does this for 5d3?

CSC will not change the original Canon screen to a third party screen from eBay for you.

The 5D Mk3 focusing screen is supposed to be fixed, according to Canon specifications.

Have seen such third party Made-in-China screen kit for 5D Mk3 at Sim Lim Square. Did not buy.
You can do it on your own but fix at your own risk. I think doing so will invalidate your warranty.

Is the 5D3 focusing screen interchangeable in the first place?

It's fixed as with the other LCD-overlay in viewfinder models. Change at your own risk.

That's why end of the day TS should go to CSC to get it replaced.
CSC will not entertain requests that are not sanctioned officially. :D

Got my 5d3 focusing screen replaced at CSC for 30 bucks. It only took an hour. They did a great job.
