overexpression in neurons

A (probably naive) question:

I'd like to overexpress a 525AA protein in primary cell culture of neurons.
I am not a molecular biologist (and I intend to stay that way if poss.) but
have heard that nowadays you can have a vector (like herpes simplex) custom
made by a biotech firm and then use it to infect the cells and make them
overexpress whatever you want.

What's the procedure and where can I find a firm that will do that?

Any info (if possible by e-mail) is greatly appreciated.
