I have read of this salat online but I can not find a Hadith that mentions it. What or is there any Hadith mentioning this salat, and what is the authenticity of the Hadith? Is this salat a Bid'ah?

This is non-existing in Sunni Islam, and Sunnis would consider it a clear Bid'ah. It bears some resemblance to صلاة التسابيح (Salat At-tasabih), except that in the latter no Surah is repeated, and it has no relation to seeing the Prophet (SAAW).
Salat Al Abhar, as described in @phoenix's answer, has some violations (according to Sunnis):
It is a prayer related from Amir al-Mu'mineen (ra) for anyone desirous of seeing the Holy Prophet (saww). In Mustadrak al-Wasa'il, we find this Hadith detailing the method of its performance:
The authenticity cannot be determined because the author has not given the isnad for the Hadith.
