Could anyone point me how to setup Typesense cluster? I looked around and find nothing. In my case, I already have 1 node with data in it. Is it possible to setup a cluster including that node without losing any data?

Regards.

Here’s the guide to setup a cluster: https://typesense.org/docs/guide/high-availability.html

You can indeed convert a single node to join a cluster, Typesense will take care of replicating the data from the existing nodes to the other new node.
