Max memory on the Ryzen system will be 32 gigs of DDR4-2666 which will downclock to -2400 speed. 

 

Service Manual 

 

Pages 27-34 show removal of the back cover. Right now you have a 512 gig M.2 SSD. You can also have a 2.5 inch SSD or HDD but would need mounting hardware and a cable. Please be specific whether you want to install a higher-capacity M.2 or add a second drive for storage. 

 

Opening the laptop is authorized to end users so no worries about warranty. 

 

Post back with any more questions and please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.

Yes 2 x 16 DDR4-2400 would work. You need these:

 

(5) Hard drive connector cable L72698-001
(6) Hard drive bracket not available as spare part

 

You can see HP does not sell a bracket. And the cable is very hard to find and can be expensive. This eBay seller has the caddy and cable for sale:
