You're very welcome.

 

Yes, you would have to replace the motherboard with one listed in your notebook's service manual that may come with a better processor and graphics.

 

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.  You can see in the manual that there is no procedure to remove or replace just the processor.

Since your PC is relatively new, a motherboard would be very expensive and it would be better to sell or trade in your notebook and get a new one with the newest processor available.

Hi:

 

You can't do any of those kind of upgrades as the processors and graphics are all integral parts of the motherboard.
