Is it possible to daisy chain one 3440x1440 monitor (Dell U3415W) and standard 1920x1080 monitor with this laptop? That is can the graphics chip handle it? Not for games of course, just spreadsheets and such.
If it can't, then would it help if I got a docking station?
The specifications say:
"Intel HD Graphics 520 in processor and NVIDIA GeForce® 940MX, 2GB memory; supports external digital monitor via HDMI or Mini DisplayPort; supports three independent displays; Max resolution: 3840x2160@60Hz (DisplayPort via Mini DisplayPort cable); 4096x2160@24Hz (HDMI)"
But does that mean 3 independent monitors with each having 3840x2160@60hz resolution or that the total resolution cannot exceed 3840x2160? Because one 3440x1440 and one 1920x1080 do exceed that 3840x2160 limit combined

Usually it means all monitors combined. However, I'd recommend running one monitor at Full HD (1920x1080), and then try to get the display resolution of the other one as high as possible.
If you run into issues, look at these threads for a reference:
