This page -- https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02016581 shows the 210y specs. The limitation will be the 300W power supply and the 4 pin supplemental CPU power.
An AMD 5600G with a B550 micro-ATX motherboard might be a good choice.
I don't know if you will have to also replace your power supply.

Replacing motherboard and cpu - is basically a new pc. Keep in mind - ram also will needs to be replaced.

Old pc doesn't have an SSD. You'll need it too.
Old graphics card is usable for office productivity only. If you intend to do any gaming, then new graphics card is necessary.
Old PSU probably also needs to be replaced (depending on upgrades).
Old case is nothing special. Do you really want to keep it.

So - donate/trash this one and get a new pc.
