I would like to change the wireless card for the laptop in $subj with
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 2x2 AC+BT
and I was wondering if I can change it myself without voiding the warranty.

See p. 26 of the Manual here:
I have to say the answer is "no", but I will also say that if you can do the replacement properly and cause no damage HP will "probably" not void the warranty. It is medium difficult as you have to remove the back cover.
If you are going to do it, I would install the HP part:
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 802.11 ac 2×2 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.0 Combo Adapter 793840-005
There is no whitelist but the official HP Part is likely no more expensive and would be less likely to have any compatibility issues. Even though this says it is for another model the part number is the same and the price is very good from a solid seller:
