Where to install SSD in Optiplex 9020 SFF

I want to add a SSD to my new Optiplex 9020 SFF (or 9010 or 7010 or 3010 , i think they are pretty much the same .  2 ques:

Where can I put it, and how to secure it?

The primary HDD is a 3.5" drive in the caddy.  There is no extra room for a drive.  The manual said you can put in an additional drive if you already have a mini drive. this is pretty vague, and I guess I don't have one.

Is it possible ( suggested) to use double sided tape to stick it some where? (side of plastic fan enclosure/ hold down?)  I don't want to get rid of the optical drive.  

Also, what is the name of the correct size SSD sata power cable?  It looks like I need a Y adapter for the power as there are no extra power cables as you would have with a MT desktop power supply.
