You do not need to think too much about B+M
Both M2 SATA3 ((with two notches) and M2 PCIe NVMe (with one notch) will fit in the laptop. The notebook also offers support for both types of SSDs.
The Crucial P1 is a cheaper and slower PCIe NVMe SSD, so a better choice would be the Samsung 970 Evo Plus or similar.
On page 36 of service manual you can see the steps to install the drive:
You should disable the Optane memory before removing. Look at the bottom of the page in the linke below on ho to disable in IRST
Hope it helps,
