The "young gentleman" is mistaken. It may be possible to swap the entire motherboard and heat sink assemble between same generation Power Mac G5 machines; that's about it and not cost effective. There are no third-party CPU upgrade products, like with G4 Power Macs. The main reason is placement of the CPU on the motherboard directly. The G4 Power Macs have the CPU on a daughter card, so it can be swapped out without the need to replace the entire motherboard.
