To achieve this, you would purchase a hard drive "caddy", I used to have this exact one and recommend it.
Then select a hard drive to install in it. For the caddy I have chosen, you'll need to select a hard drive that uses the SATA connection interface. I recommend Seagate hard drives, as they come with a 5-year warranty over other brands' 3-year warranty. You can click here and choose a drive that suits your data needs (i.e. size in GB) and budget.

If you can get an adapter for the 2.5" hard drive, you could put it into a 3.5" case, but you need the mounting adapter, making sure that if the mount provides cooling that the mount also does that and you will need an adapter for the connector. The bottom line is that you would be better off getting a case designed for the 2.5" disk instead of trying to make it fit into something that it was not designed for.
No, those two items will not work together. The disk is a SATA drive and the case is for a PATA (IDE) drive.
