@Zerkon , welcome to the forum.
Yes, there is a M.2 socket on the motherboard. Here is the Maintenance and Service Guide for the laptop: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05485573
On Pages 50 and 51 it discusses theM.2, SSD's that are compatible with the motherboard and how to remove and install them. Also, here is a description in HP PartSurfer of the 512GB M.2, SSD, that is compatible. If you decide not to buy the one from HP you can use the specifications to buy another brand: http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=763008-015
This information is in the Authorized Service Provider parts section. This means that unless you are very experienced in working on a laptop, it would be best to take it to an expert.
Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will help you with migrating your data to the new drive: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Knowledge-Base/Upgrading-Desktop-to-a-SSD/ta-p/7304861
