    1. You cannot run Snow Leopard period as it requires an Intel machine.

    2. You cannot upgrade a PowerPC machine to an Intel processor.

    3. You could purchase a CPU upgrade from sellers such as OWC, but at $400-$500 put the money towards an Intel machine when you can afford it. A Mac Mini might be your best choice.
