Self hoating an LLM for research

I am a teacher and I have a LOT of different literature material that I wish to study, and play around with.

I wish to have a self-hosted and reasonably smart LLM into which I can feed all the textual material I have generated over the years. I would be interested to see if this model can answer some of my subjective course questions that I have set over my exams, or write small paragraphs about the topic I teach.

In terms of hardware, I have an old Lenovo laptop with an NVIDIA graphics card.

P.S: I am not technically very experienced. I run Linux and can do very basic stuff. Never self hosted anything other than LibreTranslate and a pihole!
