I want to know if the CPU in my HP Pavillion Notebook is upgradeable. Im thinking about upgrading to the i3-9100f if possible.

The processor is an integral part of the motherboard and cannot be upgraded without replacing the motherboard with one lised in your notebook's service manual that may come with a better processor.
It would cost a lot of money to do that if you could even find the motherboard part.

I am 100% sure you cannot upgrade the processor without replacing the motherboard.
If you want to pay a technician to inform you of the same thing I have just informed you for free, please be my guest.
I don't work for or represent HP, but my guess is that they configure PC's in different ways to match people's budgets.
If you want a PC with an i7 quad core processor with a NVMe SSD, 32 GB of memory and the best GPU out there, that would cost a lot of cash.
