Who has looked inside an iMac


Hi, I figure this would be the right place to ask a question that doesn't seem to be answered anywhere.

I have some ideas and want to know if there are possibilities to customize.

I am leaning to my first IMAC 21 and want to buy aftermarket memory (32gb) and at least an SSD or HDD to install. So I am looking to buy a bare bones system,  been looking at refurbished Apples too.

As the years go by Apple is restricting customization.

Which model and  release year would be best to allow these changes.

Would it be easier to buy one with a HDD and then add the SSD of your choice or vice versa.

Could I choose the type of M.2 NVMe SSD to install

Could I install 3rd party memory and will the memory have booting problems on Apple of my choice of M.2 NVMe SSD, am I restricted in anyway on the choice of hardware by software.

Is there any advise anyone could give me on the choices and direction I should take will be so very much appreciated. The year models really sound confusing.

Would I need a technician to change things for me or could I do it.

Who else would know more about Apples then the people who get to core of it.
