I don't know how to do this if the image is a jpeg sorry.
I'm not sure if its even possible. The only ways I can think of doing it with jpegs is to either replace the white colour for another colour; which could result in problems if there are other white ares in the image that shouldnt be replaced. Or to try to create a shape in the white areas and fill the shape with a new colour. But that means it would only fill that shape, and if you use a different image it wont work...

However if you can use gif images instead of jpeg images I have a solution for you.
Change your first image to a gif with a transparent background instead of a white background.
Then use the following php code
(Note: the output file is a gif, but it can be changed to jpeg as long as the first image is a gif)
<?php
 
function EditImage($image, $red, $green, $blue, $newfile) {
 
	$height = imagesy($image);
	$width = imagesx($image);
 
    $img = imagecreatetruecolor($width, $height);
    $col = imagecolorallocate($img, $red, $green, $blue);
	imagefill($img, 0, 0, $col);
	imagecopymerge($img, $image, 0, 0, 0, 0, $width, $height, 100);
	imagegif($img, $newfile);
	
 
}
 
header("Content-type: image/gif");
$NewImage = EditImage(imagecreatefromgif("merged4.gif"), 3, 108, 101, "newimage.gif");
echo "<html><body>";
echo "<img src='newimage.gif'>";
echo "</body></html>";
?>

With white background it would be very very difficult to do.
Instead use the image i uploaded for you. Sort of like they use a green screen in the movies.

https://filedb.experts-exchange.com/incoming/ee-stuff/5859-merged4.jpg

and use the script below to change colors
<? header("Content-type:image/jpeg");
 
	$img = imagecreatefromjpeg("merged4.jpg"); // create image
	
	$width = imagesx($img); // get width
	
	$height = imagesy($img); // get height
	
	$color = imagecolorallocate($img,3,108,101); // allocate new color (rgb values)
	
	//$color = imagecolorallocate($img,255,120,0); //test with another color
	
	for($x=0;$x<$width;$x++) { //loop all x
	
		for($y=0;$y<$height;$y++) { //loop all y
		
			$set = imagecolorat($img,$x,$y); //get index for x,y
 
			$colors = imagecolorsforindex($img, $set); // get rgb
			
			if($colors["red"] < 15 && $colors["green"] > 240  && $colors["blue"] < 15	) { // check color 
			
				imagesetpixel($img,$x,$y,$color); //replace color
				
			}
		
		}
		
	}
 
	imagejpeg($img,null,100); //output image
	
?>
