@nuno27 - Why do you think thats the problem? Can you give us a bit more here on what the system is not doing or what you are expecting.

@danj The computer was sold from a company and is in their enrollment program when i reinstall the computer from recovery or USB when it connects to wifi automaticaly starts to download profiles and blocks everything and install some of their company intranet apps and i called apple and they could not help me and i'm trying to contact the company, but if i changed the serial number to some serial that is not being used, the mac probably will work fine

@nuno27 - You need to get them to remove it from their jamf MDM system. Replacing the serial number won't alter things.

Sounds like the computer is iCloud locked. You will need to get the company to release it. Contact their IT person, as they may consider it their property.

It is possible, is a micro-soldering job and programming job (on new ones), and to be honest is cheaper changing the complete motherboard, unless you are planning to do it yourself.
