    Yes, it will be a direct swap. Both use a 2.5" SATA drive.

    Not sure based on your post if you are looking to just use the drive in the newer laptop, but it would be possible as Weaselboy said. Your options beyond that are manual transfer (assuming you have the 2009 laptop apart from only the drive) Time Machine or other backup services, or an external enclosure.
