Hi Keri - You clearly have had some fun with the different setups Apple has used over the years. If you keep the idea of different generations (Gen1, Gen2 & Gen3) I think it would simplify things.
 
The first generation with a stuck on thermal sensor is a no brainer as long as you don't forget to take it off the drive and put on what ever drive you are planning on using.
 
The 2nd generation drives which use the internal thermal sensor are more confusing! If you get the correct series of drive you can follow what I had posted here, But as you have noted some drive makers have changed things! Some of the current drives have dropped the some of the functions we need like SATA speed adjustment (SATA II in this series) as well as a header to plug in the thermal cable intointo (and wired for it). In the case of a SSD you'll need to forge an external onethermal sensor out of the optical drives sensor (not very good) or use the OWC adapter cable for this seriesseries (I don't like using software overrides as I've seen to many burnt out systems from using it). Frankly, finding a fixed SATA II SSD's that meet my needs is(1TB) almost impossible as everyone is now making fixed SATA III drives.

The current 3rd generation drives as you have noted use an internal sensor with Apples custom firmware on the drive. If you don't get a drive with the needed firmware you will need the OWC adapter cable for this series.
 
Try to keep the focus on the series as you will confuse people. Trust me I've over done it a few times my self ;-} Adding a second comment post for a rant works too. Hope to see more posts from you.
