Hi to everybody,

Can anyone help me?

Sorry your laptop predates mSATA mSSD compatibility. The slot you found looks like a mini-PCIe slot and physically, it is. You could plug in an mSSD hard drive and it would fit. But nothing would happen because the slot is for a Wide Area Network (cellular modem) card only and that is the only device that will work if plugged into that slot.
You could install a 2.5 inch regular old SSD in the hard drive bay for the best performance that model will provide.

Thanks for the answer. I've found another solution: remove the optical drive, then install the SSD with a drive caddy.
It should works like this:
Is it possible?

Sure possible but it is a waste to put an SSD in there because the interface is slower. Put the SSD inside the laptop and a big slow spinner drive in the optical bay. That way you get best performance and max storage.
