Q1:
The difference is the size of the modules, for your X220 you'll want a 54mm expresscard.

Q3:
Your X220 supports Expresscard 2.0, as far as I know almost all usb3.0 expresscards are of the 2.0 standard.

These ones should work.

This is the one you posted above. I read in the comments that it is a little thicker than most other cards, so it can be a little harder to get out again.

A 54mm slot will accept either size, because as you can see in the picture of the

adapter, the 54mm card narrows to 34mm at the express card connector, anyway.

If you have another $15 worth of stuff to buy at the same time, the 54mm card is cheaper... the GMYLE card is $12 with shipping.

Those $1.50 cards might look inviting, but if I bought them I would assume I was wasting $1.50 (it would cost more than that to ship them back if they're no good).

Cheap electronics *can* work out, too, of course... I have bought some $1 USB bluetooth adapters on amazon that work fine using microsoft's bluetooth stack, with every feature I've thrown at them (especially using my cell phone as a 3G modem, which some built-in bluetooth adapters wouldn't do).
