Is it possible to install a CVT from one of the newer Subarus in an older Impreza, say 2001?

Probably not reasonably so. It's electronically controlled. You'd need the TCU (trans computer)  for the CVT and that's desgined to talk to the matching engine ECU which will be way different from yours .  A complete engine, trans and wiring harness swap MIGHT be possible, but it'd be a huge undertaking.
