Can a cd drive be replaced with a secondary GPU like the cd drive can be replaced with a SSD? I have a Asus G750JW and was wanting to add or see if it was possible to add a new GTX765M in it to have games run more smooth.

No. A video card uses an entirely different connection than a hard drive. The DVD ROM can be replaced with a HDD because both are storage drives of different types which use the same interface with the board. There's no way to convert the SATA interface used by the HDD/DVD-ROM into the MXM connection used by a laptop video card.
