    about/concerning

    Can "about" and "concerning" be used interchangeably in the following situation?

    This essay is complicated to write it, I have to find more about it.

    This essay is complicated to write it, I have to find more concerning it.

    Do both words literally carry the same meaning?

    Thank you!

    I would say no.
    First the other mistakes:

    This essay is complicated difficult to write it, I have to find out more about it.
    Or: This essay is complicated to write it, I have to find out more about it.
    I wouldn't use the word "concerning" in this context, it just doesn't sound right.
