Sure, both PLCC and DIL packages can be desoldered without any problems
as long as it's possible/easy to access the chip physically on the board.
(A PLCC ROM tucked in close to e.g. a PCI slot is more problematic..)
After desoldering the ROM, it's quite possible to fit a socket there
If you want professional help with this I'll gladly assist. I'm in Malmö.
