So I bought a HP Pavilion Laptop from ebay a few months ago for work and noticed it's out of warranty.
Warranty ended: August 12, 2018
Firstly, I've saw different names for the laptop on both windows system information and the name on the bottom of the laptop.
Windows shows: cc0xx
Laptop casing and sticker inside the laptop shows: cc037na
There hasn't been any official documents to show what the ram upgrades available are for the system so I'm not sure what to get as I have 8gb of ADATA ram right now and it feels like a 4gb system.
The battery inside the laptop is completely swollen in 3 places, and the battery does not hold charge for longer than 10 minutes when unplugged.
A few months ago, it had to be plugged into power constantly and it would knock off as soon as the power adaptor was removed and would constantly show 0% on windows.
Randomly the laptop went up to 100% and doesn't change but the battery will die after about 10 minutes of it laying turned on.
So I have some problems right now.
I don't know my factual product name and I do not know where to find a battery and what my ram upgrade limits are.
I've saw somewhere on HP that the internal batteries have warranty up to 3 years and not the standard 1 year that comes with standard replaceable batteries. If this is the case, how do I ask for a replacement battery from HP as the warranty won't be 3 years until July 2020.
HP doesn't show anything for the product names I've provided and don't want to end up purchasing hardware I can't use.
I've got my eye on 16gb Corsair ram and a Samsung SSD but I will also need a new battery. Just not sure if these upgrades are supported by the motherboard.
Laptop is mostly going to be used for work and some personal things like watching videos/streaming videos/music etc.
Any types would be helpful.

Firstly HP Pavilion 15-cc037na probably is the right model/product of your machine and HP Pavilion 15-cc0xx means it is a member of cc000aa to cc099zz series/family..
Manuals for the whole series:
A manual called Maintenance and Service Guide will show you many things including RAM information.
All I know: HP ONLY offers 3 years warranty on some Elitebook machines. All Pavilion machines only have 1 year warranty including batteries UNLESS you pay for extended warranty or Carepack.
1. Battery: You can use part # for battery on the Maintenance and Service Guide and use part # to order battery from HP (if available) or other stores such as Amazon.
2. RAM and SSD: Please use Crucial UK as references
They offer These upgrades are guaranteed compatible when you order from Crucial.com
