Its a bit of work to get to the single SO-DIMM socket on the backside of the logic board to add in either a 4 or 8 GB module. As you have only 4 GB system you would either get a total of 8 or 12 GB respectfully.
 
Here is a YouTube Vid which is in Indian or Pakistani (sorry): [https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=asus+vivobook+max+x541uv+drive+upgrade&qpvt=asus+vivobook+max+x541uv+drive+upgrade&view=detail&mid=DBA5AB424D2DB229FAECDBA5AB424D2DB229FAEC&FORM=VRDGAR|Asus X541U Notebook RAM Upgrade] it will give you an idea whats involved.

In addition you can see in the vid the 2.5" HDD in the far right corner. which you can replace more easily to a SSD. But before you do anything you want to first make a good backup just to make sure your stuff is safe. I would get this: [https://www.startech.com/HDD/Adapters/USB-3-SATA-adapter-cable-with-UASP~USB3S2SAT3CB|Startech 2.5" SATA to USB adapter] and a good cloning app to clone the HD to the SSD before swapping it out.
