    I know the bracket is 7 mm. Just wondering if there's a way to fit a standard size 2.5 HDD. There are non 7mm 1 TB 7200 RPM HDDs....

    There is a 1TB fusion option, which is SSD+1TB HD. It should fit.
    If you look at iFixit, you might be able to throw out the whole HD rack, and put in 2 normal drives. The space is still the same as in 2011-2012 models. They might even come with PCIE-SATA cables.

    I don't think so. I think that option uses a 5400 RPM, 7 mm, 1 TB drive.
