Hernan Cortes (1485-1547) conquered the Aztecs in present-day Mexico, while Francisco Pizarro (1478-1541) conquered the Inca in Peru. Note both were conquistadors, not explorers (e.g. both were sent by the Spanish crown to claim/conquer lands for the Spanish Empire).
In 1518 Diego Velazquez put him in command of an expedition to explore and secure the interior of Mexico for colonization. At the time he was still Mayor of the capital of Cuba. At the last minute Velazquez changed his mind and removed Cortes from the command, but Cortes in a show of open defiance /mutiny ignored the orders and went ahead with the expedition.

Most certainly.His goal was to conquer the Aztecs in the name of the Spanish Empire. Though his initial military attack in 1518 failed (he may have had guns, but not numbers), he unintentionally unleashed smallpox on Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital (now Mexico City), which made it possible for swift military victory (Cortes thought the smallpox had been sent by God). He thus established a reputation as the most brutal of the Conquistadores.
