Yes you could get a shop to build it for you. But don't be scared about building it yourself. My first build I was a little nervous but I just followed a guide and i was alright. And if you ask, the friendly people on these forums would tell you how to do everything and answer any questions you had along the way. They are very nice folk.

i don't think he's gonna be overclocking, so you can just ditch the zalman and get this for him instead of that case http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...133-134&depa=1

it'll save him the hassle of finding fans etc.

The case I suggested already has 2 fans in it. Which will do for cooling, the 120 and 80 fans aren't necessary but would help.

The case you suggested looks a little tight.

I think for a beginner the case I suggested it perfect. It is very roomy and the hard drives are set in sideways which I like a lot better than sticking them in widthwise. It also has a removable motherboard tray which is a lot easier to work with.
