Not a chance.

I don't care how good you are with a soldering iron, but there's no way you're going to get the precision necessary to solder a chip to a mobo.

No, still doesn't matter if your friend has a degree. Unless he has the machine that the manufacturer uses to solder chips to motherboards, you're out of luck.
