PowerBook G3 Wallstreet processor upgrades

So I recently got ahold of a 1998 Powerbook Wallstreet, I plan on maxxing out as much as I can, and would also like to push it to run macOS 10.4. Everything else seems very easily upgradable, except I am unsure of how to upgrade the processor.

I have read that you used to be able to buy special daughter cards with faster processors installed, but finding those cards have been proven extremely difficult. Would it be possible to purchase the daughter card of a later model, like a Pismo, and use that? Or where could I find one of the cards I require?

Thank you
