Yes you can replace the 2.5 inch drive with a 2.5 inch SATA SSD. On your model it is not the easiest procedure, however.
See p. 81 of the Manual here:
It takes removal of the top cover which involves quite a few screws and separation of plastic that sometimes does not want to separate easily.
Then we need to discuss how you will get software installed on the SSD. If you have made a recovery disk it will be much easier and you can likely still do that before doing the hardware swap.
Post back with any more questions.
