there are no less than 3 types of SSDs, along with several subtypes. which one you want will depend on what ports your motherboard has, whether or not you intend on installing your OS on it (PCI-E boards won't work for that currently), and how much you are willing to spend...

External SSD plugs into USB Ports.
Internal SSD plugs into SATA Port on Mother board OR M.2 Slot. Depending of type of SSD.

You haven’t given us enough information for a useful answer and it sounds as though you need to read up more on computer basics before attempting any more work.
In general most modern PCs have an internal SATA (Serial AT Attachment) interface to connect SSDs or HDDs. For an experienced user it is relatively simple to either swap out or add an SSD.You can use a USB port but only the most modern PCs that have USB C, USB 3.0, USB 3.1 will be fast enough to see much benefit from using an SSD compared to an HDD.
Initially update your post, explain exactly what you are try to achieve and why, and provide more detail of your setup or take it to a tech.

You probably will need to use an adapter like the one shown

There are basically two types of SSD. Standard type that plugs into the normal SATA drive interfaces and the other version plugs directly into the high-speed interfaces designed directly for the SSD on a chip.
The motherboards that have the interface built-in, are extremely fast and that’s the type that you want. But you have to have the motherboard that does this.

serial ata port, usb isn't fast enough
