Yes, you can physically transfer the ROM chip from one PCB to the other, that is the correct SATA PCB for your drive. However, that's not the method I'd recommend. The location of the ROM chip is really close to other circuitry and it's extremely easy to ruin these PCBs just from applying the heat necessary to remove the ROM.

What I always do is to just remove the ROM chip from the failed PCB, read it in an external programmer, then write the ROM code to the working drive through the PC-3000 utility. This way I'm not ruining good PCBs in the process.
