I have a Desktop with
- 232 GB SSD
- 1 TB HDD
Can I upgrade to have a bigger SSD installed inside?

Thanks for your answer. You say "you should be able", is there any way to be absolutely shure about this? I don't want to buy one and then having problems of compatibility. Thanks.
If this isn't a shure thing. What would be my best option? An M.2 interface? Maybe a pci-e card with an external USB-C port?

That I don't know.
You need to remove the 250 GB M.2 SSD and make sure which type it is--SATA or NVMe.
SATA M.2 drives have two notches cut into the contacts and NVMe have one notch.
A 2 TB SSD will cost over a couple hundred USD, so make sure you get the right type.

You're very welcome.
Even the Crucial memory report indicates the max memory is 2 x 8 GB, so I doubt you can go beyond that.
The processor and chipset would support 2 x 16 GB of memory, but it would be a complete gamble on your part to try it, since HP and Crucial say no.
