I think if a major motherboard maker like Gigabyte goes to the trouble to test and publish a list of compatible CPUs for a specific motherboard, I would use a CPU from that list. I am certainly not going to stick my neck out and say "It's not on the list but it has the same number of pins so sure, it will work." It might work. I don't know. I don't think damage will occur if you tried it, but I would not risk it. I recommend you choose one from the list, or at least contact Gigabyte tech support and ask them about that specific CPU with your model number and version number board.
So would I also be able to use more Processor Series like this one?
Show me an expert who says he was never a novice and I'll show you a liar. The stupid questions are the ones not asked - or asked after the puff of smoke, when the answer has become blatantly obvious. It is wise to do your homework first and the inclusion of links to your motherboard and the CPU list would indicate you have, and that you are no novice at this! Everything is relative, after all. I'm still learning and I've only been in IS/IT support for 35+ years.
Sorry if I sound really novice on this
