You can't just add new instructions and new hardware features to support them to an existing CPU because that would require an entirely new CPU hardware design, so you would have to have an armv7 or newer CPU in a device for Voice Control to work.
I'm working on the PleaseDo project to bring Siri functionality to older iDevices. Please see this thread for regular updates on it: http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php?topic=4398

Okey, even if the voiced library is only armv7 library, can't we rewrite it?

It's not a library, it's a daemon hence the 'd' on the end of it. Technically it could be rewritten but that's a very difficult thing to do because you have to find out how the SpringBoard interfaces with it, then you have to set up voice recognition for it and then when you finish it, you'd probably find out that the memory consumption makes the whole experience on older devices much worse.

Well you could try to do this if you are seriously interested in learning about how iOS works and stuff, but it's definitely not practical for actual use and would take a lot of time to do even if you had good development skills and experience.
