Nice to meet you, *****!
Your computer will work with both Crucial PCIe and SATA SSDs.

ok is is possible to clone existing drive with either one method or the other so it boots from the new drive

Create a bootable USB to start the computer after switching NVMe drives. Then, replace old NVMe SSD with the target empty NVMe SSD manually. Finally, boot computer from bootable USB created by this software and restore the backup image to the newly installed NVMe SSD.

PCIe 4.0 doubles the speed to around 32GB/s, while PCIe 5.0 quadruples it to a colossal 64GB/s, which is impossible for SATA SSDs to deliver.

Actually NVMe SSDs enable i.e. games to boot up two to three times faster than those installed on a traditional hard drive.

what i intend to do then is buy a nvme drive with external exclosure, plug it in to the laptop, use clone software to copy existing drive, then replace existing drive with new drive and boot off it as normal
