Upgrades for the future

Text:

Hi,
 
So Bernie my MacBook 13" Late 2008 is slowing down and causing a bit of a headache.
 
But he is working still! On OS El Cap at the moment.
 
I was wondering if it would be able to Upgrade the RAM and Hard Drive?
 
How hard would this be? I've only really used Bernie for Word, Research, And storing a lot of photos and music. What would be the most I'd be able to get? Apparently I can take the Optical Drive out and replace it with a SSD?
 
The current specs:
 
* Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
* Memory 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
* Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB
 
Any Help or Advice would be appreciated.
