The T3400 (2.16GHz) and T4300 (2.1GHz) will work for sure and I guess the T4500 (2.3GHz) will work too.

If Core 2 Duos are supported as well (no idea if they really are), the socket P variants of CPUs with an FSB of up to 200MHz and a multiplier of up to 13x should work too:

That's a very good question. Unfortunately FTS doesn't reveal any information about that. The BIOS is just a big black box. The only way I see is to try it on your own or to find someone who tried this before. But I don't know of someone who already tried this.

start -> run -> write: dxdiag. You can see what motherboard you are using. Im having mobile 4 intel chipset series. Or you can download intel chipset identification utility to check what chipset you are running.

The chipset is easy. It's written in the datasheet. The Li 3710 has an Intel GL40 chipset which supports Core 2 Duo CPUs.
The question is, if the BIOS supports them too. I guess it does since every modern notebook BIOS does, but I can't tell you for sure because the BIOS of a notebook is a closed source binary without any reasonable documentation.
