You're very welcome.
You won't have dual channel with a 4 GB + an 8 GB memory chip. You will have 12 GB running in single channel mode, like the 4 GB is now.
In order for the memory to run in the higher performing dual channel mode, the memory has to be installed in matched capacities (2 x 4 GB, 2 x 8 GB) for example.

Yes, you should have better performance on W10 with 12 GB of memory--even running in single channel mode.
Nowadays you need at least 8 GB of memory to have W10 run efficiently.
This would be a compatible 8 GB memory chip for your notebook...

You have a nice day too!
Unfortunately, I can't find a link to the service manual right now because HP has a major issue with those.
None of the links work and many of the service manuals are missing from the support pages.
