First of all are you sure that the CPU isn't soldered on the motherboard? Most laptops are made like that. If it is there isn't something you can really do to change it.
Laptops are not desktops, thus they do not offer much upgrade-ability if any at all on some models.

Great, if that is the case then go for it. The i7 is better in all aspects!

Yes, you can.
Just be aware, i7 2760qm has higher TDP rating than B940 (45W vs 35W). So your laptop will use more power, will have less battery time and may require additional cooling.

Upgrading a cpu in a laptop is more tricky. Just because it has the right socket does not mean the BIOS supports it, the manufacturer may not have added support for all CPU’s using that socket. Heat is another issue, if other versions of the laptop did come with higher TDP cpu’s they may have used a different cooler, I have seen 2 laptops of same range but with different cpu’s having different cooling solutions, for example all copper instead of aluminium.

I am not saying you cannot do it but you are more likely to run into problems than with a desktop cpu upgrade.
