I Have a HP ENVY 15 J037TX,
01. Can I use 128GB mSATA SSD for primary OS boot drive ?
02. Can I install OS directly to mSATA SSD (128GB) -without using clone software
03. I heard about capacity of mSATA slot 24GB and 32GB, then can I use more capacity mSATA SSD (128GB)

The slot is designed as a cache slot, for accelerating a mechanical HDD in the notebook.
You can insert a larger SSD such as a 120GB or more and use it as extra storage. But, I do not believe you can use it as a boot drive.
The best idea is to replace the mechanical hard drive with a 2.5" SATA3 SSD such as the Samsung 860 Evo or Crucial MX500 or something similar.
Hope it helps,
