No worries, M.2 is the form factor. They come in a few different physical sizes but they are about gum stick sized. The NVMe part is how it sends data. Basically its a PCIe x4 slot for an SSD or anything else that slots in. They are REALLY fast, You can push almost 3GBs per second out of some of them.

They are nice to have if you have any large files that need to be read quickly. like if you play games that have large textures or if you do any video editing.

There are other things that use that port but here is what the ssd looks like on a board.
