Can I just change doors of cheap white laminate kitchen cabinets? If so where can I find new ones or can I put white wood ones on?

Thermofoil doors are the least expensive, painted wood doors are about four times the price. If you are going from exposed hinges to hidden cup hinges you will have to do something with the face frames of the cabinets to, unless they are framless cabinets, then you wouldn't have exposed hinges anyway.

Can I get these doors anywhere? You don't currently see the hinges

It does depend on the shape your boxes are in. If the boxes (the part of the cabinet without the doors) are solid and won't have to many ripped up holes in them after you take out the doors, they are likely good enough to put other doors on them. If they are flimsy, wobbly, ot thin, I would replace the boxes also. The boxes are the least expensive part of the cabinets, so think about that. And Ikea makes some pretty good kitchen so don't forget to check there for both the boxes and the doors.

I buy them from a supplier that only sells to the trades, I'm sure if you do search you can find a diy supplier.
