Well, unfortunatly, we can't answer your question without first knowing what model case you have.

Yes, there are kits out there (well there USED to be, not sure if they are still around, what with the abundance of cases with windows now), where you cut your own hole, and make your own window. One of my friends did that on his PC before window'd cases became mainstream.

I don't think anybody makes side panels with a window for your case. So you can either make it yourself, by cutting a window. Or buying a case that has a windowed side panel.
