    You can install the ssd using an adapter card, yes and yes it will get full speed, but you probably wont be able to boot from it. Most boards will only boot from a drive on the board itself not the adapter.

    And yes its one of the small white slots with pci-e written on it you need.

    3gb a sec is still good

    depends if its PCi Express X1 if it is it the small slot make sure its version 2.0

    possibly if you 6gb a sec if its version 2 but not 100% on that
