You can also short the green PSU wire to a ground, but you would be bypassing the motherboard's power system control and you can cause damage

That last switch is momentary either way - you don't need a two way switch, just a one way, ie. a SPST momentary switch (single pole, single throw, momentary on)
First of all a spdt will work just wire it so you connect the ground and the momentary on. . .

And a dpdt (on)-off-(on) two way momentary like this one

Can indeed be used if you wire one ground and one on one way and you wire the other ground and the other on the other way

You'll end up with up is on and down is reset or the opposite I know it'll work because I've done it before.
