The plan is to turn the obsolete laptop into a light weight desktop, since the cpu dies are exposed, I figured I'd get good cooling if I installed a desktop oriented one. Could I do it if I figure out an independent power supply for the fan?

Assuming you are talking about cooling the CPU (and possibly GPU), a laptop motherboard is going to lack the mounting holes to mount the heatsink like those found on a desktop motherboard.

There really isn't much feasibility to your plan. Sorry.
