No, as the processor is soldered onto the motherboard. Although, I'm not too sure why you would swap the 2.56Ghz out of one 13" to put it in another 13"; you would just end up with what you had in the first place :S.

Oh, ok. I'm assuming they both use the same motherboard, so when connected it should work, but if it's a 13" MBP it's a uni-body, and I have no idea how you would open it up and change the motherboard.

As long as the form factor is exactly the same, then I don't see it being a problem

It is plausible since im pretty sure they all us the same NVIDIA motherboard w/ processor, however this is a pretty big project. Motherboard swaps on a laptop are a pretty major project. Im sure the motherboard is very expensive too. I would think between the work and expenses itd be cheaper to sell it and buy another one.
