So i have an inspiron 7566 which is the malaysian version of the inspiron 7567 that have:

i5 6300hq quad core cpu and gtx 960m

and other else is the same as the inspiron 7567.

So last week i took my laptop to the repair shop and he said that my laptop cannot be fixed because the cpu overheats really qiuckly and he said that my laptop is one of the problem he rarely see and he thinks that is the company fault.Also he said your last hope is stop playing and it hurts to hear that.

my max cpu temp is 74 degree celcius

As a laptop owner I also had overheating issues recently, but my Temps were hitting 100 degrees and my CPU was throttling. Besides repasting the heatsink I also recommend undervolting, it dropped my Temps a further 10 degrees with no performance downgrade. And keep in mind that my cpu also has peaks of 74 degrees now, which is perfectly fine. So you shouldn't even worry.

The temp seems ok. But how fast is it getting there?

Might be as simple as checking your thermal paste and making sure the heatsink and fan are making good contact.

At first I launch apex legend for the first 1 or 2 minutes and then the fps drop start coming and I notice when the spike occur the cpu usage is at 100% or in the high 90s and the fan is loud.
I will try to paste my CPU to see what happens

Or you could just use Vsync and not stress your laptop more than it can handle. It doesn't sound like your laptop was meant for high end gaming.
Put Vsync on so you won't have screen tears anyway, then lower some settings. If it still happens then you can clean your laptop for dust and try to reapply thermal paste too.
