This all depends on the motherboard and the processor type. Rule of thumb...If there is a release of some sort, a lever, a bush tab etc it is removable.

What two parts of the computer found on mother board?

Many motherboards have CPUs and graphics cards (GPUs) that attach to the motherboard via sockets. Some, however, have components that are soldered on to the motherboard and not meant to be removed. ASUS ROG series computers, for example, typically utilize GPUs and CPUs that are attached to the motherboard (they do not attach with a socket). You will notice that Intel CPUs with the "HQ" designation are the chips that are soldered on to the motherboard and are not meant to be removable. Intel CPUs ending in "MQ" are removable and can be easily swapped in and out of motherboards. Examples would be "Intel Core i7-4700HQ Processor" (non-removable) or "Intel Core i7-4810MQ Processor" (removable). Some things that are almost universally attached to the motherboard for all computers would be the PCI express sockets, CPU socket and connections for peripheral devices (like USB and headphone jacks).
