2. CPU/PROCESSOR: No, you have to replace the whole System Board because Processor is soldered down to its motherboard.
Unfortunately your machine has the top of the line System Board part # 813971-601which is for AMD A8-7410 processor and 2 GB of discrete graphics memory and Windows 10 Home, no available higher boards therefore you can't even buy new System Board.
