If I want to upgrade my computers processor, would the Intel Core i5-9600KF be supported? this website: http://www.cpu-world.com/Sockets/Socket_1151_H4_LGA1151.html says it would be supported, but https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05369438?jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0001 says that it only supports 5 upgrades. Is this true, or am I safe to put the Core i5-9600KF into my computer?

Socket LGA 1151 on your motherboard. The i5-9600KF is FCLGA1151. Not the same. The 9th Gen CPU will not be backward compatible on a motherboard made for a 7th gen. It would fit in the socket but the computer would not POST.

I would say that it wouldn't be possible to upgrade to any processor beyond those listed.
I checked your PC's support page, and none of the BIOS updates show support for newer processors.
Here is a discussion where someone recently tried to upgrade the processor in a similar model with negative results.
