Normal 2.5" SATA HDD on the market today can fit the bill. Only for 1TB HDD you need to look at its thickness because some of them are a bit thicker. In general you can follow these steps:
You have to use your Recovery disc for new HDD or your have to order (if you didn't create one) a new set from HP using this link

I don't see any reason why a 7200 RPM hard drive would not work.
I put SSDs in both of my latops and didn't have any issues. One SSD needed a firmware update but otherwise no issues.
You might want to double check the size of the hard drive to make sure that a standard 2.5" laptop drive will fit inside the hard drive caddy.
