If you would like to install more RAM, please note that 1333 MHz SO DIMM is the recommended memory for this system. There is an excellent installment guide here.

You may need the most recent BIOS update but the T420s supports 16GB of RAM, not 8 as previously (and correctly at the time) published. You can use RAM that is faster than 1333 MHz, but it will not use a faster speed than 1333 MHz.

It is not a big deal to install the ram... Just open from back cover of laptop and remove it safely and then fit it properly.. Still you are facing issue then Direcly can contact to Laptop Repair Home Service or can take help from youtube as well.

You may want to make sure the reason of your system sluggishness is not caused by malware. I will run first CCleaners & Malwarebytes Anti-Malwares first (you can download those for free in Cnet.com).

Then if it looks good, you can go on www.crucial.com which will scan your system and tell you the proper upgrade for your system, so you don't buy or install the wrong one as it will destroy your system.

Make sure you follow proper installation which you can find on ProfessorMesser.com

Good luck!!
