    You can not upgrade the CPU as it's soldered to the motherboard.

    Its easier to get a new motherboard with a higher spec cpu/gpu of your OEM Aspire 3 Aspire A315-34-P8YW with the N5000 cpu and UHD Graphics 605 gpu, see the specs of the Aspire A315-42 or 51, 52, 53, 54 or 56 also, if you do that, see if these different model(s) and higher spec motherboards fit into your Aspire A315-34-P8YW case? If you want to resolder a cpu/gpu (that is if you can get a bare bone cpu to fit?) you need expertise as its not just a simple soldering process, consider that you might need a few motherboards before you perfect the process. Btw, here is a guide of "BGA chips soldering and replacement tutorial" and what needs to be done. Btw, "I don't encourage this" as this article specifically warns you and states the risks of damage, see here: BGA chips soldering and replacement tutorial | olimex (wordpress.com) good luck, as Its up to you?
