I would like to purchase an ssd with the goals of ....
Leaving the existing hard drive in place to be used as secondary disk storage. (My existing hard drive is a SATA 1TB 5400RPM hard drive.)
Transferring everything currently on the existing hard drive to the new ssd.
And then booting from the new ssd.
I don't know how I'm going to "do" the above yet, but I thought I would first start out by trying to learn .......
Will my existing ENVY notebook even allow me to add an ssd to it ?
How do I know what to buy and where to buy it ?
Does it makes sense to contact HP and ask them the above questions and then buy the ssd from them ?
I'm motivated to make this happen but so confused as to how to get started.
Help \ direction would be greatly appreciated.

It does not have port/slot for you to add internal storage. Its specs
It has full 16GB of RAM and 1TB 5400RPM hard drive. One thing you can upgrade is to replace existing HDD with 2.5" SATA 3 SSD (1TB or 2TB) using Crucial MX/BX series, Samsung 850/860 EVO series or from other vendors.
One compatible example
