Can I upgrade a MBP logic board?

I have a dead MacBook Pro 2009 edition. I would like to have a MacBook Pro 2010 Logic board in my laptop.

Before getting into that, I'd like to get into a short story.

- I was sitting at work, wanted a mac, found a dead one for $300, got it for $225. I would like the 2010 logic board installed (better graphics, processor, etc). The lady got her HDD wiped clean. The battery works. The RAM should work. Idk. The displays are the same. -

I'm wondering if I can install the Logic board in the 2009 chassis. The HDD works, but has nothing installed in it. :P

I have a macbook pro 13 2009 edition. Looking to get a macbook pro 13 2010 logic board installed. is this possible with a kernal panic?

You need to give some specifications on both models to have your question answered.
