How should I go about replacing my logic board (MB4,1 -> MB5,2)?

Metin:

I currently have a black Macbook 4,1 (A1181/2.4 GHz) with 2 GB of RAM.
 
OLD ::
 
It comes with FireWire, and cannot make any use of an eGPU currently. I am interested in finding out wether I can replace my current logic board with that of a newer , such as the Macbook 6,1 (White - Unibody), to make use of slightly newer technologies, while still keeping the same capabilities of (if not adding to those of) my current Macbook. This would also make future upgrades easier, in opposition to having to use MacPostFactor... The primary thing holding these devices back is their older GPUs (in this case, Intel GMA X3100), which is starting to cause some issues... I'm going to need to go parts-shopping...
 
CURRENT ::
 
I'm back from my shopping trip, and have just made a video about my recent decision. I looked at the prices for all component options. The cheapest prices for better RAM (20-30 USD/unit + shipping) and HDD/SSD (50-90 USD/unit + shipping) were a bit too high.
 
I managed to grab the logic board for approx. 75 USD (including shipping). Now I just need a heatsink and a MB5,2 Superdrive replacement.

In the video, you'll also notice that there is a wire that has no place on the logic board to connect to.

A look at the same area on the newer logic board:

From what I've done so far*, it appears as though the orphaned wire was for an internal battery.
 
In addition to this, someone on eBay recently (approx 1 week ago) posted the Superdrive and Heat-sink/fan pairing I needed - for under 11 USD each. The thermal paste was under 3 USD.
