I would like to know if it is at all possible to take the shell of an old clamshell and refit it with all the new parts of a macbook / macbook pro. I see it as possible but the processor is still a part of the logic board, so I don't know what I could do. This is a project I was planning on doing in the future, and wanted to know if it was even possible first.

Hopes and Dreams to put into it:

-320 GB Hard Drive (2.5-inch 9.5mm, of coarse)
-2 or 4 GB RAM
-New Intel processor onto logic board
-DVD Super drive
-New Li-Ion Battery
-Faster USB ports

Basically I want to build a new computer inside the shell of an old iBook Clamshell, because that would just be awesome. Any help / suggestions would be great, thanks.
