I bought PoE instead of Powerline adapter by mistake. I was wondering can i use PoE as a Powerline adapter. I was gonna return it. If there is still a chance to use PoE to connect my pc and modem over electrical outlet it would be great.

No, that is two different things.

Power Over Ethernet is not the same as Ethernet over powerline.
