I have seen on many desktop chassis a special item, that is installed in 3.5 inch bay slot that has numbers and information about PC performance, voltage, etc. I want to install one of those on my computer. What is it called?

Here is an example. This is a fan control/display. I am looking for something that shows CPU and Ram usage as well as fan speed.

Mostly on the market are fan controls (search any search engine for fan controller lcd). Anything fancier is an LCD case mod which is either expensive or homebrew.

For homebrew ideas there are some Arduino mods and LCD Smartie has been around awhile. Here's one of their mods...

Anything that makes it to market that is more than a fan controller/case thermometer is very expensive.
