According to the specification page, you have an M.2 NMVe SSD and a 1TB hard drive.  On the SATA hard drive power cable there should be 1 unused power plug. Drives are mounted in a tray. See these videos, it will reference placement. You can only add 1 additional drive, because there is only 1 unused SATA data header.  (SATA 2 header, light blue).

 Drive cage, where is it.     Where is the original hard drive and how to remove it

The drive cage fits a 3.5". The floor of the tray looks like it has 3 screw holes for 2.5".  You will still need SATA data cable.
