Hello! Is Aspire 7540G (motherboard jv71tr) compatible with SSD form factor M.2 and with AMD Ryzen 3 1200 or Intel Pentium Gold G5400?

I see that is an old laptop with an AMD CPU. It will not have an M2 socket, you are very unlikely to be able to replace the CPU and, in any event you cannot use a recent AMD CPU nor any Intel CPU. Your only option is to buy a newer Laptop.

Now sometimes the laptop freezes, YouTube loads slow and the video is not smooth - it seems the only solution left is getting 2.5" SATA III SSD (except buying a new laptop). Will this change improve the browsing experience?

That's a small Hard Drive, it has.

How full is that Drive? If more than 70%, get some stuff off it

It's not so full - around 50% free.
