In brief - I had a Yoga 900 for a couple years till my Great Dane destroyed it. I got a replacement Yoga c930 on the accidental damage program. Before the 930 got delivered, I found the 920 online and decided I wanted that one instead because, well, I just really like that watchband hinge and rarely use my laptop speakers anyway.
Unfortunately, the 1 TB version was not available so I got the 512 GB and now I'm wanting to upgrade as soon as I receive the computer.
My questions are these: 1) which SSD should I get? 2) Do I need to clone the OEM SSD or can I use the recovery partition to reinstall windows onto the new SSD after install?
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
You can upgrade the current 512GB to 1TB like PN 5SD0L07883 (SSD, MZVLW1T0HMLH-000L2 PCIe M.2 1TB SSD). It's an M.2 SSD / PCIe 3.0 x 4 NVMe storage stick.
Cloning can be an option or create a recovery image to install Windows.
I hope this helps answer your query.

That definitely helps.
I've been doing a bunch of reading and it all gets a bit confusing for me. I'm confident in my mechanical skills to swap out the SSD but my software skills aren't as honed. I'll try to explain my thoughts better...
I want to upgrade the SSD as soon as I get the computer so I'm not worried about losing any files or data. I haven't received the 920 yet but on my 900 there was a little button that would essentially wipe the computer and reinstall windows (onekey I think it's called?). Is this recovery partition on the same SSD that I would be replacing or is it housed in a different physical location? My thoughts being that I could just swap in the new 1 TB SSD when I get it and reinstall Windows with the onekey setup (if it's in a different physical location)? If not, I obviously need to clone or create the USB recovery drive. Is possible to use onekey in this way or does it disappear when I pull the OEM SSD?

This newer ultrabooks do not have One Key Recovery features. The recovery feature has pressing on the Novo button is the same Windows Reset as described here in the user manual page 25 giving the SSD drives more user capacity. You can simple choose the options we have noted above.
Here is the hardware manual for the disassembly steps (page 43) for added reference too.
