Yes - Is it possible replace CPU from i3 to i5 or i7?, not just any old CPU, because of EFI support it would have to be one of the upgrade possibilites offered by Apple. e.g. you could go from 3.02Ghz to 3.2Ghz but not a speed Apple never offered.

Only you can determine if the time and cost is worthwhile compared to selling the working machine and using that money and the money you'd put into upgrade towards a new box.
