Need more BIOS features

HP Recommended
HP Pavillion 17z-ak000
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP laptop includes the Insyde H20 BIOS/EUFI.  It is up to date.  However, I'd like to be able to do some things that H20 apparently does not support.  For example, I'd like to be able to repurpose the physical socket currently assigned to the onboard WiFi antenae for use by an external graphics card.  (I've seen this done on other laptops, not made by HP.)

 

Is there any way to obtain extended capabilities in the BIOS/EUFI?  I'm guessing not, but I want to exhaust all avenues of exploration before giving up.

 

I've looked on the Insyde website, but they are pretty clear that they do not work directly with end users.  I'm guessing that attempting to install a BIOS made by another provider is likely to prove fatal.  My browsing on HP's site has not turned up any way to extend or replace the existing BIOS, other than updating it which, as I've said above, I've already done.
