Aren't you getting a little ahead of yourself? First you have to purchase the tank and all the extras, get it set up, add the live rock, etc, and let it cycle for a few months. At that point you start searching for either the eggs or the live cuttle. The good thing about all of the time it takes is that it gives you an opportunity to learn as much as possible by reading all the articles and following all the applicable threads. Then, when you do get your cuttle, he will have a much better chance of survival.

No, I don't have any ceph tank, and that is at least partly because we want to be free to pick up and travel (we're retired) whenever the mood hits us. You can find someone to care for a cat or dog, even for horses and more exotic animals like alpacas, but the water quality requirements of ceph tanks are so stringent that you can't just hire someone to come in and do it. They have to really know what they are doing.
Something that you need to do before you go any farther with your cuttlefish quest, is figure out what this is going to cost you. You need to price everything you will need, and there is plenty of information on Tonmo to at least give you ballpark figures, and then you need to consider the costs involved in feeding cuttles. As DHyslop and cuttlegirl can attest, if you don't live where you can go to the ocean and catch your own food, the costs can be astonomical. Cuttles eat a lot, and having to have fresh sea food shipped in every week is really expensive. Do you have a job? If your parents are going to have to help you out with this, they need to know what you, and by extension, they, are getting into.

For someone who doesn't know much about saltwater tanks in general, that post comes across pretty rude and uninformed.
Finding a service company that is any good at talking care of a reef tank is hard enough. Finding one that has any useful experience with cephs is basically impossible.
