I suppose you have a grid of Leads and you want the lead to be opened if you click on Company Name?
If this is the scenario... I don't think it is possible.

I agree, It is not possible to change the field designated as the Primary Field on a CRM entity.

You can create web resource and display a CRM look a like grid to have this. But it will be too much development for this requirement.

There is no workaround out of the box.
