    hi

    i've MBP 15" 2011, my display is " MacBook Pro 15-inch Glossy Widescreen Display "

    is there any possibility to upgrade it to the better ones like " MacBook Pro 15-inch Hi-Res Antiglare Widescreen Display " ??

    i googled it but nothing useful came up, is there somewhere i can buy a screen for my MBP ? and install it somehow ?

    No.

    ifixit sells the normal screen and has a guide how to replace it (hint: it's difficult!), but I don't see anyone selling the high-res antiglare.

    Sell your MBP and buy a new or refurbished one with the better screen.

    OP, this is basically your only option. it's much harder to find the part, and replacing it is a pain.

    Not worth the trouble, problems that may occur down the road.

    TechRestore replaces MBP glossy with matte displays.
