1. On the evidence to hand the answer is YES
http://uk.crucial.com/gbr/en/compatible-upgrade-for/Acer/aspire-tc-705

2. However an SSD will not dramatically improve booting times -
I wanna speed up my booting time with a ssd
if by that you mean loading windows

the main benefits of an SSD are read access to apps etc, rather than the actual boot - power on and the windows loading times from boot to desktop.

3. I am a little unsure on that Acer of the white and black I would expect the white to be 6Gb SATA111 and the black 3Gb SATA11 that is the speed of the port

4. On the Acer Aspire TC705 send the serial number or SNID

Cheers
https://www.acer.com/datasheets/2015/4871/TC-705/DT.SXNEQ.010.html

absolutely ridiculous lack of info available from Acer - the user manual at least the one online is generic and does not even show the motherboard schematics
However I have found the board elsewhere and I now see the two white and one black SATA ports - to the right of and close to the DIMM slots if I am not mistaken

So yes you can and there are a couple of ways to go about the job
Do you need help and advise
My previous post has the links to the SSD although of course only as a guide

You can either make a fresh install of 10 on the SSD
and then keep the existing drive the 1TB for all except the OS
moving data from the existing 1TB as required

OR you can clone if you buy a large enough SSD
https://www.easeus.com/backup-utility/migrate-windows-10-to-ssd.html
https://www.easeus.com/partition-master/transfer-windows10-to-ssd.html

That is only a very brief outline see the above two links and this one
https://www.howtogeek.com/97242/how-to-migrate-windows-7-to-a-solid-state-drive/

Maximum benefit will be obtained by connecting the SSD to the white port and moving the DVD to the black port - I presume at the moment the HDD is on one white and the DVD on the other
