Most likely no. As far as I know HP does not use MXM.

To overclock your video card download and install any drivers that have overclocking enabled (most of them and the official nvidia drivers) and get software that can overclock, RivaTuner (recommended), ATI tool etc.

For the clock rates, generally don't go over 20% higher than normal. Try aiming for the clock rates of a 9650m GT or 9700m GT

As for upgrading, you won't be able to because a 9600m GT is MXM II whilst a 9800m GT is MXM III/IV so a 9800 won't fit even if your laptop had MXM.

HPs are non Upgradeable. Sorry.

Except some are; 8510, 8710, Dragon and probably more. But may be well protected against other brands than HP/Compaq cards.
