My specs: i5 8300H, GTX 1060 6 GB, 8 gb of RAM
CPU is 75 up to 90 degrees celsius while playing CS:GO on high or medium and fans are extremely loud. I mean, it is just CS:GO.
I got this warning:
Your cpu temperature has exceeded 83 degrees. Prolonged use at this temperature may shorten the CPU's lifespan.
Battlefield 1 is unplayble even on low settings. I am afraid of trying The Witcher 3.
It is even kind of loud when I am doing light stuff. Like using MS Word or Mozilla Firefox.
I used a desktop before. Is supposed to be like that? Are all the Y530s like this? What is the right thing to do? Should I return the computer?
Sorry for bad English.

I had this exact same issue playing Cities: Skylines - CPU temperatures would reach 90 degrees celsius (I have the same laptop as you, just the GTX 1050TI)! I've recently bought Friday the 13th and I had the same issues where the CPU temperature would reach the 90s. I found a solution, though! The only way you can lower your temps is through undervolting, and trust me, I was afraid of doing that ever since I got my brand new laptop. However, that is honestly the best way to do so (other than replacing the thermal paste which is more of a hassle), and it is even recommended so your laptop can last longer. Now, the highest temperatures I've recently reached were 80 degrees (85 if I play long enough), but it usually now stays around 65-75 degrees celsius, which is a BIG different since it usually stayed around 85-95. I just hate I didn't do it earlier since I usually prevented myself from gaming due to the high temps.
Here's the video that helped me undervolt, it's a really a simple step! Just download Intel Extreme Tuning Utility and follow what he does: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXRWQqWXmaA&t=8s
As a reference, I was able to undervolt my laptop to -.140 V with the same specs as you (i5 8300H). I haven't tried any higher. Hope your temperatures lower as well!
Edit: As for the fan issue, it's normal! Unfortunately, you're going to have to deal with the fan sound while gaming, but I've been able to game pretty well with earbuds.
