    It seems, on these notebooks, SATA & PATA are used/implemented in a combined function mode. According to ICH7 datasheet, in this mode, AHCI is not available.

    Is there a structure for the HD5650 in the 8942G's bios? Is there any chance that it can be used to replace another in the 7738G's bios?

    There is an option ROM (VBIOS) for the HD5650 (MADISON) in the 8942G's BIOS. Yes, can put the option ROM in 7738G's BIOS. Just need to replace (any that not in used) existing option ROM in 7738G's BIOS.

    Do you think it has any effect on a card with a bios on it?

    The machine has an MXM slot.

    Anything but the GT240M or HD4650 can go.
