Disabling the APU iGPU could be done in the BIOS.  Not sure though as this will depend on your laptop where the ability to make BIOS adjustments is limited by the manufacturer

I doubt that with the amount of heat you are describing that disabling the iGPU will be the only fix needed.  With APU's,  the greatest contributor to heat is the CPU voltage.  It is unlikely that the laptop BIOS will allow you to undervolt the CPU and significantly help in reducing heat.  However,  please enter your BIOS and see if there is this option

You may also try via Windows -

Control panel -  Power options -  Set to Balanced and not Maximum
