2)am i going to have to buy a 3.5 to 2 X 2.5-Inch Bay Converter?

Thanks in advance

1) No it just uses SATA power and data cables which you should already have.

2) It depends what kind of case you have - it may already have a HDD tray with screw holes for a 2.5 inch drive. Many people simply tape them to an out of the way part of the case.If you get one of these you can have two stacked in a front bay http://www.span.com/product/StarTech-SATA-Mobile-Rack-HSB220SAT25B-SATA-to-SATA-Trayless-2x-2-5-HD,-1x-3-5-Bay~31650
Make sure you read the manual before you install it - my old OCZ Vertex 3 had to have the OCZ Toolbox installed before anything else.
Remember you don't need to defragment it - it takes care of that by itself.
