Changing logic board to change graphic card

Text:

Hey guys !

I have a mid-2012 13" MacBook pro (2.5 Ghz, the cheaper model).

So, my main focus is to change my Graphic Card (i have the Intel HD Graphic 4000) and my RAM (from 4 GB to 8 GB), however I found out i had to change my motherboard (logic board) to be able to change my graphic card.

Therefore would it be possible to get the motherboard of the other mid-2012 Macbook Pro 13" (2.9 Ghz), put it in my laptop and change the graphic Card to an NVIDIA ?

And the best question of all: would it be cheaper to buy a laptop just for Gaming ? Thats somethiin i dont want to do, having two laptops, thats too much.

And also because my mac works really well, he is just to shi**y to play games like Titanfall or BF4. I am stuck with Star wars and LoL right now. Feel my pain.

Just like Jon Snow, i know nothing. So please speak to me as if i was a toddler smashing  a star shaped block into the circle shaped hole.
