In order to change the processor from AMD to Intel you will need a different motherboard, CPU and most likely memory.
Changing all that will cause your OS not to work correctly since your drivers for everything will no longer work.
Also according to Microsoft's EULA on the OS your installation would have to be formatted and a new installation would need to be done to make everything legal again/ You will not be able to use any recovery disks or installation disk originally included with the Compaq system.
Also if you are not worried about malware then I cannot guarantee anything I suggest will work since I don't know if I am fighting a hidden infection.

If you are going to replace

Motherboard
CPU
Memory


You might as well replace OS also since everything theoretically will be brand new and can handle Windows 7 then. In reality with just what you are asking you will have a new system.

You should be able to use your keyboard if it is a USB connection.
Plugging it into the laptop will disable the built in keyboard as long as you have it connected.
The flat panel should work if you have the right connection to the laptop. Usually a standard vga cable will work if what you have is a monitor.
If it is a TV then you may need a HDMI cable or digital cable to plug into the laptop.
