I have a intel core tm i7-5500u , i understand that this CPU will not handle windows 11, not enough cores?

No, for multiple reasons.

Win 11 requires 8th Gen or later CPU.
That would require a whole different motherboard.
Laptop motherboards are rarely interchangeable.

Your CPU is also a BGA socket...BallGridArray. Soldered directly to the motherboard.
