  1. Not a chance, its running a powerPC CPU in it, the motherboard is totally different, you could theoretically reuse the housing and replace it with the board from a Mac Pro which has the option to run dual Intel quads, but then its not really a G5 anymore, its a confused Mac Pro.
  2. just buy a new computer.
