I am wondering if it is possible to upgrade my existing core duo in my Dell E1505 to a Core 2 7200. If so then would it support 4 gigs of ram?

Yes you can... and 4GB will be compatible whether or not you change out the CPU. However, note that unless you are using very memory intensive applications, you will not see much improvement in system speed over 2GB. Also note you will need a 64-bit operating system in order to address the full 4GB.
but on the dell web site it said the ram was only expandable to 2 gig which i already have. my current processor now is a core duo 1.86 32 bit. are you guys sure that the core 2 wont hurt the board or anything else?
