Yes and no. There is nothing wrong with dips and db rows, BUT, for this particular program, push ups and body weight rows are used for shoulder health and injury prevention (by inducing you to do shoulder protraction and retraction.)

So I wouldn't change it if I were you. Or at least, I would not substitute all sets of push ups and bw rows - I would leave some for the aforementioned reasons.

You need to learn and understand the reason and motivation for doing a particular exercise - strength, size, power, health/rehab, etc. Exercises in a program are not wooden blocks on a board that you can replace at random.
