For passing display through USB you need USB Alternate Mode. This is defined by Wikipedia as: An Alternate Mode dedicates some of the physical wires in a USB-C 3.1 cable for direct device-to-host transmission of alternate data protocols.

They only work on specific supported motherboards. Your CPU however indicates that your particular machine is way too old for that. Currently, the following manufacturers offer add-in cards for select ...

As Vivid Kraig and Ramhound pointed out in the comments, upgrading the USB port in your laptop isn't happening. However, despair not, for there may still be a solution for your actual needs.

If the monitor can still function as ...

"Am I wrong?": No. At the time of writing, there doesn't seem to be such a convertor available. "Is there a solution to my problem?": Yes. Buy a mini DisplayPort hub (docking station).

Yes - I use the Sabrent KVM, and am very happy with it. It handles a single HDMI monitor, and so doesn't quite handle your situation. The way it works is you have USB-C from each computer.

Is a USB-C hub/KVM possible? Absolutely. Since USB-C supports keyboards, mice, and video signals, as well as audio, there is no technological reason this cannot be done. KVMs arent as popular as they used to be. In the enterprise, KVMs were common in server rooms and data centers. They have been slowly phased out, as manufacturers starting integrating ...
