When I read about the manual didn't mention using one or two NVME, I already setup nvme to pcie (not sata port) but little confusing about about few month

We would need to know your exact motherboard before we could answer that. Different boards have the PCIe lanes split up in different ways.

You can, as long as you only use M.2_1 and only use an NVMe M.2 drive in that socket. Using M.2_2 disables SATA_5 and SATA_6, and using a SATA M.2 drive in M.2_1 disables SATA_1. M.2_1 is the lower socket, down by the SATA ports.

What do you mean by M.2_1 disables SATA_1 when using lower socket, Will I lose only 1 SATA port?

Only if you use a SATA M.2 drive in the lower M.2 socket. If you use an NVMe drive, SATA port 1 is still available.
