No, you can not. There are tons of reason why, but it all boils down to the same thing, which is 'No'.

Actually not too long ago I saw a forum member here create a thread talking about putting an Intel Mac Mini in, although I forgot how it went.

That's pity there seems no way to do it. It would be great to have a decent
2GHz/2GB Mac mini inside that gorgeous iMac G4 case... Maybe one day
someone will figure out a way. My iMac is waiting.

The chips fit in different sockets for a start,

The supporting north and south bridge chips are for different processor types, plus there's memoty and bus speed issues as well.

The whole architecture is different.
