Hi,
 
Any internal SSD 2.5" like this you can't use the PCIe.

No Sata3 devices will work on SATA2. The SSD will work at the max speed supported by the motherboard, even with SATA II you will notice an improvement in the machine performance.

Yes it should work nicely, I see nothing stopping you except you may need a bracket for your case but those are dirt cheap

 

Something like this should do:

Yes, though there are loads of differences internally between a SSD and a HDD:

 

 

Just keep in mind that has some outdated info (such as pricing) but will show you what is under the hood of a SSD and a HDD

PCIe SSD's are more expensive and the machine needs a PCIe Gen 3.0 slot to take advantage of all the speed provided.

Yeah ignore PCIe SSD's especially for your hardware.

SATA is fast enough
