I need to add some links to the top navigation bar in my Modern SP Page. Here is what I currently see:

enter image description here

I'd like to be able to add links horizontally (rather than the vertical left-side navigation) where either of the highlights portions are. Currently if I go to Site Settings I can add links at the top:

enter image description here

But the text/link appears small and at the very top of the page:

Is there any way to add top navigation in either of those highlighted sections?

As you are using Team site & not Communication site, you have left navigation instead of top navigation.

If you don't want left navigation & use top navigation, you have to use communication site.

Team site navigation:

Communication site navigation:

Team Site vs. Communication Site: Which one should I choose?

You can find more information about customizing SharePoint site navigation at: Customize the navigation on your SharePoint site

If you want to continue using team site, there is no out of the box way to add navigation links at the places you highlighted in image (attached in your question).
