I don't think you'd "install" new organs as such, but rather make them grow new ones. You might implant a "seed" or sorts that the body would then grow on to make a new lung or heart or whatever.

It would never be a simple process, you are altering that basic physiology of a human which is no easy thing.

But hey it's Sci-Fi so go for your life, the basic framework is there with the Space Marine process. All you need to do is come up with a fluff reason as to why the Sm process doesn't work for females and the develop a process that avoids that limitation.

It really doesn't need a firm scientific basis as very little of 40k has that anyway.

There's really no point though...anything a woman can do in combat, a man can do better (on average)

If they are modified to the point of being a SM then gender doesn't matter. The end result isn't human anymore.

Unless you change the average, which I think is the point of genetic modification

pretty sure the assassin cults have female and male members. Enhanced by augments and HARD DRUGS MAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNN. lol Infact i dont know if it was just 1d4chan trolling, but i think there is a vindicare assassin that sleeps with Macha that eldar from Dawn of War. The assassin is female but takes the form of a male( for mating ritual) lol this could be the writings of a fan boy Shemale porn fanatic

A renegade Inq could of had a demon possess the SM, that would of gotten the GK on the chapter like flys on a plague marine. A sparten lvl genetic soldier is childs play by 40k standard.
Spartan level soldiers is what well the imperial guard needs to make them be able to survive more instead of die in droves.

or this armor http://section8.wikia.com/wiki/USIF_..._Assault_Armor

no genetic enhancements needed yet has all that super soldier needs

Now imagine the cost of outfitting the billions of Imperial Guardsmen with that armor. It's costly and time-consuming enough to produce Space Marine power armor! And then imagine having to teach them all to use it; some regiments originate from Feudal, Feral, or other worlds with a low tech level, so can you truly expect them to understand this new technology? And what happens when regiments equipped with such armor turn to the worship of the Chaos Gods, join the Tau Empire, or otherwise betray or rebel against the Imperium? Such technology would make them that much more difficult to eliminate.

In all honesty, I believe that the organization and munitions - or lack thereof - of the Imperial Guard that the Departmento Munitorum has now is the best it can do right now. There are so many different regiments of so many different backgrounds that, while some regiments will have poorly-trained and equipped guardsmen dying in droves, others have the opposite. It's starting to look like regard to attrition has more to do with a regiment's culture than it does with Imperial policy. Not that the Imperium cares about the individual, but even so.

Right, rant over. Carry on.

In a universe primarily governed by space voodoo, where the "science" bits are bash-head-against-wall retarded, all things are possible.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.
