As the GPU on a laptop is soldered on the MotherBoard (Planar in IBM/Lenovo language) changing it requires that you change the MB and someone (Lenovo) makes this new MB....
As per the processor, I do not know it the sockets are compatible or not and if they will/can use the same chipset for the 2 and 4 cores CPU ...
So, IMHO, the possibility is very very very remote you'll be able to make the switch....
