I have a Hard Disk drive in my laptop so I m little confuse here ...
Should I use Update Directly to macOS High Sierra (APFS) option or go Update Directly to macOS High Sierra (HFS+) ?

The installer will not convert your HDD to APFS, so you don't have to worry about it.

Okay, I can use this option Update Directly to macOS High Sierra (APFS) without any problem.

If your system is ready (Clover updated, kexts updated, EFI/Clover correct, etc), then it is simply a matter of updating via the "Install macOS High Sierra.app" and then dealing with whatever problems result.
