Not sure your laptop is geared for the extra power use the i7 uses neither your PSU for the laptop. And think allso - it will be cheaper to but new than get a old used laptop to switch the cpu - and you can´t buy mobile cpu´s as you can with desktop cpu´s.

Yes change the HDD for a SSD will be a good idea as a SSD will lower the power usage and make the laptop snappier (read faster) though you will need a program that can make a clone of your HDD to your SSD then.
