Would like to know the feasability of "retrofitting" a hold-open from another variant so that the bolt will stay open after the last round. Any experience or advice?

God Bless America!

Yup but the Century Sporter is an L1a1 so it wouldn't holed open either.

You can retrofit from another variant or pull yours out and fit a roll pin and file it to fit and function.
For some of the best information on working on an FAL variant go the the Gunplumbers site at www.geocities.com/Area51/1234/arizona.html.
