I don't know what is your xxx (xxx can be from 000 to 999) but in general your machine has following ports
● Headphone/microphone combo jack
● High-definition multimedia interfact (HDMI)
● HP Smart AC adapter
● RJ45 network
● USB 3.1 Gen1 Type A (2)
● USB 3.1 Gen1 Type C
You can't use eGPU because your machine does not have port which is fast enough for an eGPU. You need USB-C Thunderbolt 3 to be able to use something like

Is this your manual?
If yes, then your laptop has an M.2 NVME Slot.
Theoretically you could use it to connect an eGPU in it, with one of these (preferably the ADT-Link
R43SG), and achieve almost Desktop like performance.
Here is a successful example.
But there is a big possibility that Bios will not recognize it, cause of the known whitelist issue with the HP Bios.
And HP Bios are RSA signed and cannot be modded.
So, even if laptop is yours, you don't really own it.
HP has the final say and will decide what you can and what you can't do with it.
If you are determined to proceed, you can buy one of these cheap adapters and pair it with an old gpu, to test if it can work.
