I'm interested in replacing my CPU with a stronge one...
Currently I have a Core Duo T2300 1.66 GHz processor...

The answer is yes. You will need to update the BIOS to F.0E (27 Aug 2008) , which adds support for Core 2 Duo processors.

I tried to change the T2250 Core duo CPU to a T5780 Core 2 Duo but it not fit! They have different "leg" shape. According to your comments is it impossible, it must fit to housing. How is this differential possible?
I took some pictures from the CPU-s:
And this is the CPU bracket:
