Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook's model series.
Chapter 1 has the supported drive types and configurations.
I think the easiest thing to do if you need more storage would be to replace the 512GB NVMe SSD with one having a larger storage capacity.
Most likely the parts are not present to add a 2.5" drive since your notebook came with a M.2 SSD.

The manual is going to list the parts that could have come with the notebook, not necessarily the parts that did.
You'll have to open it up and see if the parts are there to add a 2.5" drive.
My assumption is that they are not there since the notebook did not come with a 2.5" drive.
