I have HP Spectre 13" Notebook having 8GB RAM and 256GB Storage. Can I upgrade it to 16GB RAM and 500GB Storage?

You can't upgrade the memory because it is an integral part of the motherboard, but you can install a larger capacity NVMe drive.
The memory comes pre-configured in either 8 or 16 GB capacities. Non-removable, non-upgradable.
Below is the link to the service manual...

The manual you shared contain te Storage specification as follows -
256-GB, M.2 2280/DS, SATA-3, PCIe, NVMe, solid-state drive with TLC
I've found the following from my laptop's task manager -
Current SK hynix PC401 HFS256GD9TNG-62A0A
I searched this and found the following device in Amazon -
(SK Hynix 256GB M.2 SSD (Solid State Drive) NVMe PCIe Model: HFS256GD9MND-5510A BA - OEM)
I'm not able to match the specification between these. A little bit confused to chose right spec for my upgraded SSD storage.

When I search the drive model number you posted, it shows up as a NVMe drive.
I was able to find a 512 GB model of what you have now...
