Trying to get Minecraft Java Edition to run on:

Intel i5 2500s
Intel HD 2000
16gb Ram (dont ask me why my stepdad wanted that much)

If you're technical enough you should grab Optifine (https://optifine.net/home). The site looks old and potentially dodgy but as far as I know it's perfectly safe. For more information on it you might want to check Reddit/YouTube for installation instructions etc.

That will give you a lot more graphic options to play around with and you'll want to be bringing things down in quality until you're getting stable frames. Minecraft never runs great on built-in graphics but I would hope that the decent amount of RAM you're rocking there it might help a bit.

Hey man. Your pc seems good enough to run minecraft smoothly. You can install optifine, and it will add some fps also. I have some similar pc specs, and I can easily play on my own minecraft server hosted by https://ggservers.com without any lags. You should get 30+ fps for sure, man. If you want more, you can lower the setting and it's going to run smoothly 100%
