No, that square peg will not fin in the round hole. As the needs of processors change, the mfg's need to improve the socket they can go in. As the technology takes significant jumps, backward compatibility becomes impossible or impractical so they redesign. Here is info you could have easily Googled.
You pick your processor, then you select a suitable motherboard for that processor. If you have a motherboard, then you are limited to processors that will fit and are compatible (not all processors for a particular socket will always work on all boards with that socket, sometimes improvements in processors will not allow them to work on an older board).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Your question is like asking - can I wear a size 6 shoe on my size 12 foot? Obviously it won't fit, right?

Same goes for CPUs & CPUs sockets. 754 CPUs fit in 754 sockets, 939 CPUs fit in 939 sockets - they can NOT be interchanged!
