@battleaxe1151 , welcome to the Community.
Based on the age of your computer (2018) if it does have the TPM chip it will most likely not be TPM 2.0. If there is a chip it should be on the motherboard towards the bottom in the middle.

so i don't have to repeat everything
Some indications can be changed, and some may not be useful to you, I can not always adapt the answer!]
the official version of windows 11 at the time of writing this answer has not yet been released, unless I'm mistaken!
Don't rush, any new version has these problems, wait at least a little bit before you start
Check everywhere if there are problems after installation or not!
For tpm 2.0, there are many sites that are starting to talk about it.
You can start by checking the general compatibility with the microsoft tool
another tool given by the expert @WAWood gives more information (thanks to him for this find
for TPM 2.0 to be activated with bios uefi, if it is possible
"In the search box or with the Windows + R key combination, we type tpm.msc."
look at the bottom, where the TPM version is shown. If we see version 2.0, our computer should be compatible with Windows 11 in this section.
possibly check for product updates
I read that it would be more or less possible to add a module, but nothing concrete, nothing found for the moment
The security module, being generally integrated into the processor, there is no way to change this for many computers, incompatible processors!
The requirements for windows 11 may change, in the meantime avoid spending unnecessary money.
hp official link
I don't know if we can find it in English
There is something new, still a little confused, but it seems, that the requirements are still changed
There would still be certain conditions, not too uninteresting in the end if it stays like that!
The link is translated here, I don't know if it will be clear, but in the main line it should be understandable!
As we can see in the previous link, it may be possible to install windows 11 even if the processor is not supported
there is the return of the microsoft check app
once downloaded and launched the scan, the result is given, for compatibility
that gives (french sorry)
if you click on specifications, a microsoft page appears
Windows 11 isn't here yet, but will be available later this year. If you are looking forward to it, you can already do some preparations.
This PC will run Windows 11
