The HDD is tested, and on one of the images it suggests it is a

Suggests it is a 9.5mm deep drive, so 9.5mm or less should fit.
So my laptop is compatible only with 7-9mm, bummer !
but i dont get this, it says 7mm but on the description, it says 15mm, im totally confused !

Agreed, you cannot use the 5TB as it has too great a z-height (15mm) and your laptop will only go up to 9.5mm.

If you go with a 2TB, depending on your budget you may want to consider an SSD -- there are a number of 2TB drives under $200 that would work very well for storage drives. The other alternative is getting a big external drive.
