Inspiron G3 15-3579, upgrade suggestions

Hello everyone!

I want to ask about upgrading suggestions.
I need to upgrade Ram, PCI-e SSD, And HDD to SSD.

For RAM: I've read the manual, but i'm a little bit confused. It supports 2x16GB module @ 2666MHz. But it's really hard to find 2666MHz modules in my country even if online stores. There isn't any. Is there a noticable difference in performance  between CL17 2400MHz and CL19 2666Mhz modules? The only brand i can find here is Crucial. And do 2400MHz CL17 (2x16GB) memory modules work?

When it comes to SSD; is 1TB PCIe supported? Manual says not! 512GB max. But at Crucial Site it says 1TB is supported by Dell 3579. If so May I assume that Samsung 970 evo 1TB may work? Or do you have any suggestions compatible or tested 1TB PCI-e drives?

And for the SATA HDD; there is not much explanation about SSD SATA Drives.

The maual says:
One 2.5-inch Hard Disk Drive (HDD) : SATA, up to 6 Gbps Up to 2 TB
One 2.5-inch Solid-State Hybrid Drive (SSHD): SATA, up to 6 Gbps Up to 1 TB

There is no explanation about SSD SATA. Is it possible to work 1 TB or more SSD on sata slot? Like Samsung 860 QVO?

Samsung is for exapmple, and this is not because i'm a fan of Samsung Brand, but it can be easily found and at top of the list of affordable well-known brands here when it comes to prices.

Thank you.
