Currently it is using intel ac-3165 and it is slow. I wanted to upgrade to intel ac-9260 or 8265 at least, can it work although it doesnot list in the replacement parts since all is 1x1 only. I need 2x2.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
Other cards may not be recognized by the BIOS giving "undetected device" error as only those listed in the white list hardware manual item 12 page 89 are certified for the machine.
Basically, there are no guarantee that it would work other than those on the list.

I think it was how the model design was built at that time.
You can check all other compatible WLAN card here in the parts lookup (look under compatible parts under configuration tabs) for other wlan cards if available.
With user customized choice, OEM manufacturer may limit it through white listing to ensure full functionality as certified and tested by their engineers (granted protocols).
