This is going to hurt. The 16GB SSD was an Optane disc cache device. It was used to speed up your data access.  You maybe able to repair with the assist of a tech person.

There are 6 SATA data headers, ( 6x SATA 2.0 connectors (SATA 0 - 1 @ 6 Gb/s, SATA 2 -5 @ 3 Gb/s)).

So you only have 2x6Gb/s ports. The Upgrade manual shows the cage as a 3x3.5" drive unit.  Regardless, there are adapter trays that allow 2x2.5" into a 3.5" slot. But you still have the issue with the 4x3Gb/s ports.
