The D3100 does have a microphone. It is a monaural microphone, placed just above the D3100 will see three holes there. There is a speaker too, on the rear lower right-hand side, so you can listen to video you have recorded. What the camera does not have is a microphone input; you cannot add an external microphone for stereo and higher quality sound.

I just answered your question

The D3100 DOES HAVE A MICROPHONE. You just can't add a better microphone. I cannot explain it any better than that.

I have never heard of anyone modifying a DSLR camera to accommodate a plug-in speaker.
The Solution is to buy a camcorder with an input for a microphone.
