    Possible, yes. Practical, no.

    It costs more to buy the SuperDrive itself rather than taking the upgrade and getting 120GB hard drive, 2.16ghz cpu and the super drive. It would for sure void AppleCare as well. On top of that, it would be very difficult to install and you would run the severe risk of screwing some internal parts up.
