No, you cannot change CPU generation without replacing the motherboard and even the RAM. Some laptops you cannot change the CPU at all without replacing the motherboard because the CPU can sometimes be soldered to the motherboard.

The i5-3337u CPU is "socket BGA" which means it is soldered into the motherboard. Also, different generation CPUs have different numbers of socket pins making them incompatible with each other.
