You need to replace the hard drive with the SSD - and move the hard drive to the adapter.  All of these adapters are third-party - you won't find one from Dell.

Yes.  No hard drive can deliver anywhere near even 150/s -- and it'll be for storage only (most of these adapters cannot be used for boot drives).
