According to HP's page: https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c06660455

 

Your motherboard has two M.2 ports, one for your SSD, and one for your network.

HP has taken down the motherboard's page for some reason, so I can only go by the specs listed.

There is no mention of any SATA ports or anything else under "Expansion slots," so I'm leaning toward the answer being no, you cannot add an extra drive, however you could replace your current drive with a larger one.

 

How difficult would it be?

Well, first you'd need a flash drive large enough to create a bootable Windows disk.

Then you'd use Microsoft's utility to create a Windows installer: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 

Next, you would power off your PC and unplug it from the wall, then swap out the drives.

Then reinstall Windows with the USB stick you made.

Lastly, you'd need an NVME-to-USB adapter, and you'd want to plug your old drive into one of your PC's USB ports to transfer everything over to the new installation. 

Extremely easy stuff if you're a geek, probably overwhelming if you're not one.

use the documents I gave, open the computer, and check ...
If it is not possible to install it, use it as an external drive, just buy a kit to turn it into an external usb drive
