Since I already fed you, I might as well change your diaper 馃槀. You have a few options

1. You man up, buy a good vise, set of steel punches, and a hammer - Then go for it!

2. What you said google a local gunsmith.

3. There's few online company's, gun shops, and / or gunsmith's where you can mail your slide.

DV8 has a very shady reputation from non working out of spec slides to down right theft.

Ok the "Springfield Armory XD" comes in 3 variations

3" barrel called "Sub-Compact" chambered in 9mm & 40SW(small frame)

4" barrel called "Service" chambered in 9mm, 40sw, & 45acp a few other obscure calibers as well the 9&40 frame are 100% compatible the 45 frame is different.

5" barrel called "Tactical " the service and tactical models share frames

Odd duck was the 45 "Compact" a 4" service slide with a shorter gripped frame.

You want to customize go with a Glock - trust me when I tell you this these pistols are great just the way they are. To me if I could only do 1 mod on all my XD'S it would be the stippling. It's what I think to be the most beneficial mod I could think of. I'm well aware that the stippling jobs I did to all my XD's aren't the best looking there the best feeling that iv handled.
