The i3 processor is suitable enough to run Windows 10. As for the HDD, yes. However, HDDs will never have the same performance compared to an SSD. Also, it should be mentioned that as HDDs age, the mechanical parts like the rotating platters and actuators arms that move across the media to do read/write operations, degrade with time. As a result, the disk queue will grow and become a hinderance to overall performance of the operating system, especially as you begin to add more programs to the runtime environment. So, the older the HDD, the slower its performance. These days, SSDs are considered standard in most systems, at least for the OS.

Should I downgrade to previous Windows system like Win 8 because it can running well without lagging or can I switch my HDD to SSD? I mean is there needed to using additional bracket or converter?

I recommend you switch to an SSD. You do not need any converter, just make sure you buy the correct type. In your case, this would likely be a 2.5 inch SSD.
