If you want to do gaming, you have two real choices and they are to purchase a desktop machine for gaming and keep your laptop for general use and portability or sell your laptop for what you can get for it and purchase a gaming laptop intended for that purpose. Purchasing a gaming desktop of equivalent power would be cheaper and if the budget allows, you can get something more powerful than you can in the laptop.
You can try some games on your laptop if you turn down most of the settings, use a cooling pad, and limit the time you game at any one time because heat will still be an issue with most portable machines. Sorry, there is no cheap way to do this and there is no way you are going to make any significant change to your laptop. About the only improvements you can make to a laptop is to add more memory if it is lacking enough and switch out a conventional hard drive for an SSD drive which will improve start ups, loading programs, and general responsiveness some.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Because it's a laptop, you're out of luck.

Laptop video is almost always integrated into the motherboard and is not upgradeable. Laptops are generally not very upgrade friendly. The design priorities of Laptops ( low weight, small size, low power consumption) are incompatible with the requirements of modern gaming. Laptops can be used for gaming if your requirements are not too high but it isn't what they were designed for.
