Just wondering how to swap my existing ECU to an upgraded one (APR, neuspeed, etc). Any help would be appreciated...

you don't have to swap the actual ecu, you can go to a distributor and have your existing one chipped/flashed or send it out.
you can however, buy a spare and have that chipped so you can swap when you go to the dealer. you'd also need a vag-com to erase fault codes. about $400 for the spare ecu & $2-300 for a vag tool.
