I believe you are talking about IDE ribbon cables. However the cable you have now should have a second connection on it just for this purpose.

If you are talking about the little plastic things that make a drive a slave, look on the back of a cdrom, etc. Most often they have extra unneeded jumpers.

Yes. and even if it not unneeded, you can temporarily take it off the CD-ROM and disconnect it (you can't use it obviously) and use it on the hard drive, then put it back when you are done. I've got about 20 of those things laying around. You can get them at radio shack or any computer store.
