Upgrading hard drive and logic board in an iMac?

Testo:

I've got a mid-2014 21.5” with the dual-core i5 1.4ghz processor. I acquired it at an auction, and it has no hard drive installed. The logic board is also faulty, and needs replacing.
I've done a fair bit of googling, but I'm afraid the technical aspects of upgrading this particular model escape me.
* Can the logic board of this model be upgraded to the more powerful quad-core processors for the same year/size unit? Thinking the 2.5 or 2.7 gHz i5. Not sure if they are compatible, let alone the same size to fit into the unit. If I do upgrade the logic board to a more powerful model, will I have to upgrade other components as well for it to work?
-* Can the hard drive be upgraded to a 1 or 2TB HDD? I've read that there's not much hope of using anything other than the 500GB apple hard drive provided for this specific model.

I greatly appreciate your help with this!
