okcnaline - Yes, in some cases it is possible, but I've found often the CPU is soldered to the motherboard. Even if it isn't, it's not as easy as swapping out a desktop processor. As an experienced desktop builder, this is not something I would even try to undertake with a working laptop.
On the off chance you are able to replace the CPU, you're right in that you have to match the socket and make sure the BIOS is compatible with the new CPU, but I would think you also need to make sure the new processor comes in under the max rated Thermal Design Power.
