In a word, no. The pinout is the same, but the solder points are inaccessible. If you have an automated solder rework station, something like that found here: http://www.apolloseiko.com/ then yes, you can do it.

In all likelihood, all you will accomplish is breaking two phones to try to save $100

No. The NAND Flash are hardwired onto the logic board. Unless you have access to reflow equipment and resolder IC's there is no way you can get it accomplished.

This is not practical as the memory is encrypted, unique to each phone.
