If possible, I wish to replace the current 2 cell battery in this used model I bought, as it lasts just 2 hours. What batteries can I look for online or where could I buy ones that can replace the original in this laptop model? 175% (of original) or above capacity would be ideal.

Your laptop can be used only with the type and size of battery for which it was designed. There are no higher-capacity batteries that can be used.
To obtain the longest runtime possible when using only the battery, you should use all of the power-saving settings available on your system. "Lenovo Settings" has some relevant settings, and Windows has a power-saving power plan. Switch off wi-fi and/or bluetooth if you are not using them, and set the screen brightness to the lowest-setting that you find acceptable. Finally, don't play games on battery -- always use mains power.
