I don't think you should sub these mainly because planches are primarily a shoulder exercise with a bit of biceps and 'upper chest' while pushups focus more on the triceps with a bit of emphasis on the shoulders and overall chest. If you want to make you pushups hard and work towards a planche at the same time then do pseudo planche pushups:

Well, if you don't have a set of rings, you can always do them on the ground as well. The farther you put your hands to your waist, the harder it will be. You will be suprised how much harder moving your hands back an INCH will make the exercise. Also, elevating your legs will make the exercise harder as well.
