that’s pretty cool, but i don’t think i have any internal usb ports
Is this a "name brand" system, or a home built? Pretty much all commodity motherboards have at least one or more internal USB headers. I have like 4 in my system, and the front panel port only occupies one, so I pull the rest out with fence post adapters, like this....

And even if you don't have any internal headers, you can route a cable out to a port on the back...

that’s not exactly what i meant
i mean ports completely inside the case.

I guess I don't get what the problem is. You can take the USB adapter I linked to above off of the fence post bracket, then use that to plug into an internal USB header on your motherboard.

Either way, SATA is a completely different protocol, and it's unlikely you would ever see a SATA to floppy adapter. It's possible in theory, I suppose, but with the USB adapter devices so cheap, there's no reason for someone to spend the hundreds of thousands of dollars to design and build a SATA device.
