Your system should be compatible with MacOS Mojave and also Catalina and Big Sur.

AirDrop requires WiFi support which means if you want this functionality you will have to get a MacOS compatible WiFi card. Any WiFi hardware included with your motherboard is not supported.

I have used Plextor and Kingston M.2 NVMe SSDs with MacOS Mojave and Catalina and they work fine.

What card could you install for airdrop and handoff to work?

Anything that is supported by macOS and better than a GT 710. AMD cards work the best with FCP X but are rather high priced right now.

Regarding the ssd I have a Crucial NVMe CT500P2SSD8 500GB Will it work? I have read that it is better to have samsung brand NVMe on macOS

No, they are not supported, save for some special RX 550s which use the same chip as a RX 560. As it is difficult to ascertain, my own recommendation is to avoid them.
