    Specs:
    2008 15" MBP Yosemite, 2012 21.5" iMac Yosemite
    Doubt it.
    RAM and HDD replacements are the "average limits" to customization. Some replacements such as LCD display and keyboard can be done with a level of difficulty. My understanding is anything attached to the "motherboard" is an unlikely modification.
    Did you try to Google the subject or look at sites like iFixIt?
    64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

    Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

    The GPU is surfaced mounted on the logic board. The likelihood of being able to remove it and replace it with a different one is probably slim to none. And even if you could do it, it probably would not work due to the chipset difference.
