I have a Lenovo V520-15IKL. It, as all Lenovo prebuilts, comes with a proprietary PSU with a whopping 180W OF POWER.
I want to put a 1650 super or a 1660 super (whichever becomes available first) into it since a GT 1030 ain't cuttin' it anymore
I want to put a Corsair CX550M to replace the old PSU.
Will it be possible to (with proper adapters, 24 pin to 10 or 14 pin for motherboard power and that other shablaz) use it without any fire hazards?

Almost forgot to mention the might be relevant but probably not specs:
Core i5 7400
8Gb 2400mhz (single channel) ddr4
Aforementioned GT 1030 which is to be swapped out for a 1650 super or above
 
the system uses a proprietary power supply that does not fit standard sizes and probably doesn't use standard connections.
you would not be able to install any standard 3rd party models in this case.

you would need to totally rebuild with new case, new PSU, & new motherboard for any serious upgrades or even basic changes.
