Does a Blu Ray Player that is just WiFi ready actually have the ability for an adapter to be installed on them? Can you purchase adapters for these players like a 802.11ac adapter. Will these Blu Ray Players have browser installed on them or can you stream Hulu Plus, Netflix and YouTube video on them?

I think that Samsung BD-H6500 is the solution.
Or the Sony BDP-S6200

Seem like both of these players are 802.11n and I want to be able to purchase a new router because I have a larger home. So, I thought that if I purchased one that was only WiFi ready it would make it more future proof.

I had already looked at both of these Blu-Ray Players. I was asking my question on here because I thought maybe an expert on here knew more than I did about the subject.

No, all present technologies will become obsolete in the future.

Is the Samsung BD-H6500 a dual band (5 GHz and 2.4 GHz) Wi-Fi blu-ray player?

I found the Samsung BD-H6500 on sale at Best Buy. It was not 802.11ac but it was dual band so it worked out fine.
