La parte de/sobre

Hi everyone

Can "la parte de" and "la parte sobre" be used interchangeably to mean "the part about (such and such happening)"?

It doesn't feel like they can be used interchangeably, though I'll defer to native speakers, obviously.

la parte en que sucede x...
la parte que trata sobre x...
la parte que se trata de x...
la parte sobre x... (not sure if this one sounds quite right)
If you find something wrong with my Spanish, please correct it!
