The Intel Core i3-5020U 2.20 GHz is a 5th generation dual core processor which has an Intel HD Graphics 5500 integrated graphic device.

I did some researching, and there appears to be a registry edit for increasing the amount of VRAM.
Whether it "actually" increases the amount of VRAM or it just shows a fictitious dedicated number, I don't really know.

I did some further researching into it, and some claim it works and others claim it doesn't.
Either way, changing it isn't going to cause any hardware damage.

I doubt if your laptop will overheat because of that.
When a laptop overheats, it'll freeze up and/or shut down without warning.
