Yes half-height and low profile are the same thing, said both because you never know which they will use in an ad.

Adding a video card is very easy to do. Dell even shows you how,

removing the cover, Documentation

adding/removing PCI and PCI-E cards, Documentation

Full service manual here, Dell Inspiron 535s/537s/545s/546s Service Manual

Then once the card is installed it is just a matter of checking the bios that the onboard is disabled (it should be by default once a video card is detected), and then installing the driver for the new card (uninstall the driver for the onboard before installing a new card).
