Peter you won't be able to use the Samsung 960 M.2 NVMe SSD. Apple uses a custom PCIe NVMe interface. Besides, the Apple 1 TB & 2 TB units are faster than Samsung's!
 
You also appear to be looking at the Samsung Pro Series SSD's. Unless you are setting up a dedicated server there is little benefit going to the more expensive Pro lineline, stick with the EVO line.
*
FYI - I support over 300 MacBook Pro's which more than 2/3rds have Samsung 850 EVO's. I think we have only replaced one SSD in over three years of use!

As for installing a second SSD, Yes! That can be done as well. But lets first make sure you get the correct model here. You'll want to use the custom configuration selecting the [https://www.apple.com/shop/buy-mac/imac?product=MNED2LL/A&step=config#|SSD only option with the either the 3.8 GHz or the 4.2 GHz models] selecting either the 1TB or 2TB option. Then you'll need to order a SATA HD cable, adapter frame to hold your 2.5" SSD in the 3.5" drive bay and lastly the in-line thermal sensor:

* [https://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/DIDIMACHDD12/|OWC In-line Digital Thermal Sensor for Hard Drive Upgrade for 27" iMacs 2012 and Later]
 
I would just stick with the [http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/product/consumer/850evo.html|Samsung 850 EVO SSD] Vs the Pro model.
 
Two last points:
 
Opening your system will void the warranty, besides the newer 'Thin Series iMac's are a bear to open if you don't use the proper tools and techniques as outlined in the IFIXIT guides. It's quite easy to damage the display which would be a very expensive Opps!
 
Frankly, I would recommend you hold off on adding the second drive until the warranty period has expired. Instead, I would recommend going with an external Thunderbolt RAID'ed SSD unit as a better direction it will be faster than the SATA internal interface! And then use it for your backup drive.
