How i said in the title, i bought a X1 Carbon with a non touchscreen 1600x900 display and i find some panels with 2560x1440 and touchscreen, cheap enough to replace mine.
I want to know if it will works after i will change, and if i can do that alone, without a service.

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.
It will be complicated to do so, as LCD bezel, cover, cable are different for both touch & non-touch models. It is not simple as plug and play.
I hope the above information helped you.

And if i will replace a 1600x900 non touchscreen with a 2560x1440 non touchscreen display, it will be simplier? Same pieces? LCD, cover, Cable?

Sadly, additional parts required to upgrade from HD+ to WQHD will be LCD panel, cable, bezel, hinges, rear cover. So this not easy upgrading LCD panel in X1 Carbon 2nd gen like other ThinkPads I believe.

HD+ has 30 pins connector whereas WQHD - 40 pin connectors, but it should work as the end which goes to Motherboard is same for both.
