No, the processors are not user-serviceable.

Almost no laptops have socketed CPUs that you can change out.

A quad core i5 wouldn't work in a Macbook Air anyway. The Air uses ultra low voltage processors with lower power requirements and heat generation than normal laptop processors. It wouldn't have the power supply or the cooling power to handle such a processor.
