I want to regulate the speed of my cpu fans as the system gets heated up pretty quickly while gaming, tried downloading speedfan but it wont show the PWM control options. However it detects the cpu fan but it doesnt allow to modify its speed. Under the advanced tab in speedfan rather than showing the control options (like Smart Guardian, On/Off etc) its showing some vague options. I have an ASUS VivoBook 15 Intel Core i5-1035G1

Screenshot of the options i got- https://prnt.sc/w1l5u6 , https://prnt.sc/w1l870

The BIOS menu also doesnt allow access to the fan controls, its hardly of any help.

Most likely reason is that Speedfan doesn't fully support your laptop's hardware (it hasn't been updated for around 18 months).

If your laptop is quickly getting hot while gaming then your pushing it too hard, beyond what it was designed for.
That laptop model wasn't built for regular gaming, only "casual gaming" with less-demanding titles/older games.

The BIOS is typical of mainstream consumer laptops. Options & settings are fairly basic so you don't screw something up then expect the manufacturer to fix it.
