I have a iMac G5 with a CPU PowerPC G5 (3.0). Can I get an Intel processor installed in it so I can Snow leopard?

No, your machine has a PowerPC G5 processor, and the Intel processor and motherboard architecture are completely different. The only solution to upgrading is to sell this machine and buy a new Intel based one.

As far as I know, no. In addition, processors are one of the most expensive parts on a computer. It would probably be cheaper to buy a new Mac.
