Specification does shows only one slot for storage. On selct models, they would have 2 SATA ports without the DVD using secondary HDD board (ex. MTM 80XH01KHBM).
If your machine model have an optical bay instead then perhaps replacing current HDD with a SATA 2.5-inch, 7 mm SSD then use a caddy on the DVD slot for the 2TB HDD. Caddy are not part of the OEM design so we cannot guarantee specific caddy but you may check on this post.
OEM recommended SSD are listed here in the hardware manual item14 page 72-73. Most SATA 2.5 SSD should work just fine (you are not required to OEM brand). It is often finding the compatible caddy that is a challenge.
I hope this helps answer your query.
Yes, you may move your Windows 10 to the SSD, other prefer clean installing Windows while others just clone it.
