no you cant upgrade graphics and if you open it your warranty will be void
if you need portability get a basic netbook and then have a desktop at home to game from

Only laptops with mxm slots for the GPU can be upgraded. Usually these are only found in like Alienware laptops, and pretty much no other brands if I recall correctly.

Other brands have the GPU soldered into the motherboard, making it impossible to remove/upgrade.

What research did you come across that leads you to believe it's possible? I'm curious.
