Replace Toshiba laptop screen w Sony laptop screen? Same size. 15.6"

Is this at all possible? Pretty new at the whole DIY breaking computers open to fix them stuff but i'm learning quick haha.

Here is the toshiba and the screen:

Here is the replacement screen for the Sony laptop(actually an LG screen):

What would I need to know in order to understand if this would work or not?

Also, here is the laptop w me holding up the screens:

It's not the size of the display screen, these are all fairly identical. It is the connector socket and the rail screw positions that will bite you.

I suggest finding an exact replacement. If you can't find one on eBay then you certainly will at a store like this one:
LAPTOP SCREEN from $34.99, replacement LCD screens. Repair Tablet, Acer, Apple, iPhone, iPad, Samsung, Dell, HP Compaq, Toshiba, IBM Lenovo, Sony, Asus, Gateway.

Notebooks are too proprietary. I would not even attempt this. Even looking at your images, the bottom edges look very different.

Also, just because a screen says 15.6 inches, when it comes to monitor and TV screens, that is NOT the dimensions of the panel, but of display screen. That is, this 15.6 screen may have another 1/4 inch on either side under the bezel while that 15.6 screen may have 3/8 inch - enough so it will not fit.
