Upgrading the motherboard and the processor on a Macbook is extremely difficult if even possible. The amount if will cost you to buy a new processor/motherboard etc.. you might as well just buy a new Macbook and help out the economy!

You won't see any difference between the two CPUs. Even if it was easy to do, it would be pointless.

You might knock off 10 minutes off an hour's video encoding.

In everyday use, there's little difference between any of the Core 2 processors to be honest. A 1.8Ghz Core 2 won't feel much different than the 3.0Ghz version. The Core 2 range is pretty fast throughout.
