Approx. Total Memory is the video memory of your graphics card. As you have Intel HD Graphics, an integrated graphics card, this 763MB is most likely shared memory. In short, this means some of the video memory is taken from your RAM or system memory.

Unfortunately, you cannot change your Approx. Total Memory. Short of buying new graphics card, there's not much you can do.

As for playing PES 2011 on integrated graphics... not such a good idea. Integrated graphics aren't good for much other than day to day computer use. You might be able to play it but on low settings and even then, the game might lag a bit. PES 2011 isn't the most graphics intensive game but integrated graphics aren't suitable for most games.
