Hello!

Unfortunately, the processors are non-replaceable, and the logic boards are not compatible. Your best bet for Snow Leopard is to save for a new machine.

Sorry for the bad news!

Not possible, you could buy a non-unibody MacBook Pro, they look a lot like the aluminum PowerBooks, if your attached to the look of the PBG4.

I've heard of doing that in a PowerMac G5 before, try checking the apple support site, maybe they have something to help you, or else try checking youtube.
