Your notebook only has one wifi antenna.
If you want Bluetooth to work, none of those cards will work for you, and the last one (7260) won't even fit in your notebook's wifi card slot since it is of the HMC form factor and your notebook uses the M.2 form factor wifi cards.
There is only one dual band wifi card with bluetooth that will work for you, and that is this one...
Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.
You can find this model on eBay, or Ali Express,
The card will have the same throughput as the 8723DE on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band, it will have a max throughput of 433 MBPS when you have an AC router with an excellent wifi signal strength.
Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.

You're very welcome.
If you want to go through the trouble of ordering the antenna kit listed in the manual, and taking the entire notebook apart including the display panel area to properly run a second antenna, then you may as well upgrade to the Intel AX200 non-vPro wifi card.
