First, here are your specs. There is a chance that I don't have the right model so you need to verify this.

The CPU cannot be upgraded, it is an i5-8250U which uses an FC-BGA1356 socket.

The BGA in the socket name stands for Ball Grid Array and these sockets have the CPU soldered to the mobo. They cannot be removed.

RAM size is upgrade-able to 32GB, here is a website that guarantees compatibility
