This is a laptop, right? In nearly all such cases the simple answer is NO because laptop processors are generally not removable. Also, the problem in playing games can also be due to the video chipset not being able to meet the demands of the games.

Unless you go to the extra expense of acquiring a "gaming" laptop, your experience is going to be poor.

Yes you can but it's probably not worth the effort for that notebook. For game play, it's the graphics card whether onboard/built in or and add-on card that handles that. With notebooks and netbooks it's generally not a good out come for playing games on, unless you buy a laptop that's specific for game play (gaming laptops). Then the cost for one of those laptops tends to exceed $1000 mark.
