This is your CPU https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/50178/intel-core-i3-380m-processor-3m-cache-2-53-ghz.html

The socket is this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_G1

If you look at the socket image you can see it's a plug in socket. Those are the steps you can do to find thing out, just follow some research.

If you are looking to swap CPUs, just because the CPU is removable does not mean some random CPU of the same socket time will work. Laptops need specific support for the CPU in the BIOS and motherboard design.
