    Welcome to the Forums. There is no way to increase CPU speed in Macs. There is no way to overclock and there is no way to swap the CPU. It's soldered to the logic board.

    So, I'll have to replace the Logic board? Is that another unremovable part?

    Unfortunately it would cost more to get a new Logic Board then what your computer is worth, and it's going to be pretty expensive for someone to put it in. My advice is simple, sell your iBook and buy a used MacBook.
