Does this exist or con someone make one? I'm sure alot of G75 owners want to re do their paste but dont know where to start!

I don't think that there exists a guide specifically for this, but I will add the first bit:
1) Get yourself some quality thermal grease: arctic silver or IC diamond are good.
2) Be careful when disassembling the computer, it takes time, and there are quite a lot of pieces.

Ok, but since its a laptop, i really dont know what/where the mobile gpu looks like and what to put paste on? (1st time doing this as you can see)

Youtube has several videos showing the G75 tear down. Pasting a CPU/GPU is the part you should focus on. There's a video you can find where the poster demonstrates the different methods (dot, line, cross) of application and how it looks when it spreads as you reinstall the heatsink. Getting to the components isn't difficult (use cups or an egg carton to separate the different screws, take pictures and make sure to observe electrostatic safety - ground yourself, touch bare metal parts of the laptop chassis before handling EPROMs/RAM/GPU/CPU/etc) but if you get an air bubble in the paste, you'll be doing it all over again. The CPU and GPU are highly visible components, they'll be directly under the heatsinks. The G75 has two cooling arrays, one for the CPU and the GPU, each with their own fan. Like Zygomorphic said, take your time and don't rush. Do it right so you only do it once.

Well I blew the **** out of the back fans, and ate tons of dust, and now run Dota 2 at a comfortable ~72, NOT 96!!! So i guess problem solved in a way, but thanks for the information. Btw I te some thermal paste, dont. it tastes like weird.

If you take my topic/pictures from here http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?34113-G75-Changed-TIM-TPADS.-With-tests.-%28warning-many-pictures%29 (start from picture in upper left cornor and work your way from left to right)
combine them with the disassembly process from here http://support.computerupgradeking.com/wiki/index.php?title=ASUS_G75VW_Disassembly_Manual then you have a very good guide.

And pich a thermal compound from here. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-January-2012/1468/5scroll to the buttom. its from 2012

The mobile GPU will be in the disassembly guides, and it looks like a large circuit board attached to the motherboard. Its shape is rather like that of a desk chair desk.
