Almost certainly not. USB3 is orders of magnitude faster than USB2, and it's very unlikely that the chipset silicon designed for the slow data rate could even begin to keep up at the higher speed, even if we ignore the other differences. And that's without the appropriate drivers...

And the chipset for USB2 has no idea how USB3 negotiation is handled, so a USB3 device plugged in would still only work at USB2. It's not really practical to try and change the chips themselves, most modern stuff is BGA (teeny tiny balls under the chip where you can't reach them) or fine pitch SMT (where you need specialist tools to desolder / solder without pulling the PCB to bits - Weller do a Flow-tip for some of their irons which can cope with 0.5mm pin pitch for assembly, but disassembly needs heatguns and a lot of care). Even if you had the kit, without circuit diagrams it would be a nightmare. Bear in mind that complicated PCBS tend to be multilayer as well, so just following tracks needs a damn X-ray machine...

Unless you are a seriously good solderer I'd have to suggest you look at upgrading kit if something's too slow - home alterations to modern PCB's are unlikely to succeed.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
